08/04/2014 Peter Bacon, The Jazz Breakfast

An assured album of contemporary European piano trio music. 

 

06/03/2014 Bruce Lindsay, All About Jazz

'Out on the oceans, a big ship can seem ungainly and slow to respond. No such problem for this Big Ship. Throughout the 11 tunes the Inner Language Trio demonstrates a masterly command of rhythm and dynamics—shifting direction and pace with the agility of a speedboat one moment, then gliding sedately with the grace of an ocean liner the next.'
 

 

01/03/2014 Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise

'Stiefel is quietly putting down his own stamp on contemporary piano trio jazz.' 

 

27/02/2014 Euan Dixon, Jazz Views

'In his second album for Basho Records Swiss pianist and composer Christoph Stiefel revisits the isorhythmic compositional techniques that featured so powerfully in his first album `Live!` but applies them rather more judiciously in a way that allows his music space to breathe.' 

 

15/02/2014 Adrian Pallant, AP Album Reviews

'Stiefel’s compositional and pianistic range is impressive – often full-on-energetic and infectiously rhythmic; at other times, finding delicately reflective backwaters. And in bassist Arne Huber and drummer Kevin Chesham, he has discovered two empathetic musicians who bring their own particular expertise, sophistication and spark to these eleven originals.' 

 

04/01/2014 Stephen Graham, Marlbank

'The most startling European jazz trio I’ve come across since first hearing Tingvall trio it’s a delicious album of Stiefel’s own compositions, wrought with their own wistful energy and imaginative bittersweet resolutions. The narrative arc the trio so instinctively assembles spins out, even in ‘First Blossom’ the briefest of the compositions, and draws you in like a moth to the flame as the ship sails blithely on.'
