A formidable acoustic trio set from the German-born pianist Antonio Ciacca.

A formidable acoustic trio set from the German-born pianist Antonio Ciacca, the 37-year-old who has played for many jazz legends, partnered the late soprano-sax revolutionary Steve Lacy, tours with hard-bop legend Benny Golson and is admired by Wynton Marsalis. Here, Ciacca plays Thelonious Monk's Pannonica with a feathery, unMonkish lightness that sketches in the composer's characteristic angles, and It Could Happen to You with a Bill Evans contrapuntal vividness, admirably supported by bassist Dennis Irwin and drummer Ali Jackson. The Ciacca originals in mid-programme have the same glistening playing authority but fade a little as themes. English Rose is a smoulder that doesn't quite burn; But Not for Me and the original Bouncing With Benny are, however, absorbing circumnavigations of a familiar melody and diamond-bright, Bud Powell-bop excursions respectively. Orthodox, but fully engaged.
