Order 2-CD Set

"Serenity" brings the work of the Stenson Trio to a new plateau, drawing on the richness of the jazz tradition, on folk music, Cuban song, 20th century composition, and free playing. The choice of material is inspired. In addition to pieces by each of the trio members and collective improvisations, we hear two pieces by Hanns Eisler, one by Charles Ives, and one by Alban Berg, plus Wayne Shorter's "Swee Pee", singer/songwriter Silvio Rodríguez's "El Mayor", and two accounts of the Swedish folk tune "Polska of Despair" by Lorens Brolin.
