Twinkle Twinkle - year end best of....

From the Bird is the Worm blog, by Dave Sumner

28.  Dialogues Trio w/Julian Siegel – Twinkle Twinkle
I’m enamored with the premise of building an album around compositions based on the children’s lullaby “Twinkle Twinkle.”  It’s the right kind of clever.  However, while there is a soothing nighttime quality to this music, these ain’t song to fall asleep to.  When I first sat down to listen to this recording, my assumption is that it would be something not unlike an ECM piano trio snoozer.  But, actually, most tracks are quite lively, and far more representative of Babel Label’s inventive catalog of releases.  Solid, from first note to last.
Released on the Babel Label.
