Available languages: EnglishSwedish pianist/composer Bobo Stenson made a name for himself in the late '60s as one of Europe's finest players, accompanying visiting luminaries like Gary Burton, Sonny Rollins, and Stan Getz. Underwear, his 1971 debut as a leader, began an ongoing collaboration with ECM Records and with drummer Jon Christensen. Christensen also joined Stenson on sessions with Jan Garbarek in the '70s and Charles Lloyd in the '80s and '90s, and played in Stenson's revamped trio along with Anders Jormin. The Swedish Grammy-winning Reflections (1993), War Orphans (1998), and Serenity (2000) make the most of Stenson's lyrical, versatile style and the players' long history of working together. Christensen left the group after the Serenity tour. Stenson recorded a pair of albums for the Mirrors label with different ensembles, and self-titled duet album with saxophonist Lennart Aberg in 2002 for Amigo, before returning to his trio work for ECM with Goodbye in 2005. The latter set featured Paul Motian in the drummer's chair. Stenson and Palle Danielsson co-led a band on 2007's Miles by Five for Touche Records. In 2007, Jon Fält became the Stenson trio's permanent drummer, first appearing on 2008's Cantando. This was followed by the trio date Indicum in 2012. The 12-track set included works by Bill Evans, George Russell, contemporary sacred composition, free group improv, traditional hymns, and jazz reads of Carl Nielsen. While the trio toured on occasion, they were absent from the recording studio for five years. Stenson's trio re-emerged with Contra La Indecisión in January of 2018. It was recorded the previous May at Lugano's Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI with producer Manfred Eicher. The album's title track composed by Silvio Rodríguez, was one of four "covers" on the date. Others included Bartók's adaptation of a Slovak folk song, a piece from Mompou's Cançons I Danses collection, and Erik Satie's Elégie. These were strategically placed among Stenson's and bassist Anders Jormin's compositions along with a pair of group improvisations.

With a huge variety of sources and influences, Bobo Stenson’s music is never limited to a single territory. He’s not really the kind of Swedish pianist who throws himself into the wide range of improvised music, be it jazz or other genres. He is very much in line with the ECM aesthetic, the label on which he has been one of the most prominent musicians for over four decades… His Swedish trio (Anders Jormin on the double bass and Jon Fält on the drums) makes a stand in the ever so indecisive world of 2017 with this Contra La Indecisión, an album as magnificent as it is decisive. Staying true to themselves, the group supports the originality of their approach here. In addition to collective improvisations and original compositions signed by Stenson and Jormin, we find on the menu the piece which gives the album its name, composed by the Cuban Silvio Rodríguez as well as the adaption of a Slovak folk song signed by Béla Bartók, an extract from Cançons I Danses by Federico Mompou and even the famous Elégie by Erik Satie! The physical and mental force of the trio and the individuality of each of its members is such that all these influences come to blend coherently into an organic whole of profound originality. With Stenson’s lyrical touch as well as Jordan’s folk tinged phrasing make Contra La Indecisión as exquisite as possible… © MZ/Qobuz
