David Rees Williams Trio - When I Am Laid In Earth

Genre: jazz

Two things stand out on this track – the immense power and sonority of the piano and the subterranean depth of the bass guitar giving voice to Purcell’s famous ground bass. The problem being that, on the wrong system, neither is particularly connected to the other. It’s as though the musicians played their individual parts without hearing the others. Then the bass drags the piece down and the piano plods without the momentum or passion which is so evident when your system is really working well.
