Many More Days


The second ECM album from Swiss/Italian trio Third Reel (comprising reedsman Nicolas Masson, guitarist Roberto Pianca and drummer/pianist Emanuele Maniscalco), 'Many More Days' takes its open-plan music to the next level.

Each of the players bring music into Third Reel, and each of them has his own distinct compositional signature, but from the outset their pieces are "always conceived as material for multiple, unpredictable developments." Compositional guidelines are like gateways into fields to explore. Masson's elegant clarinet and lean-toned tenor are emphasized, Maniscalco floats between drums and piano, quietly lyrical on both instruments, and Pianca is most often a kind of orchestrator-in-action, subtly enfolding the interaction with swelling sustained chords. Like the eponymous 2013 debut album, 'Many More Days' was recorded at RSI in Lugano, this time with Manfred Eicher producing.

Praise for Third Reel:

"A thoroughly engaging set, with the accent very much on texture and space." - Jazzwise

"Third Reel is as original as it is absorbing, richly rewarding repeated immersion in its highly individual sonic world." - London Jazz News

"Strong musical imaginations are at work here...a very promising debut." - Jazz Camera

"An absorbing and often beautiful recording that deserves to be heard widely. These beguiling snapshots speak of even greater things to come." - The Jazzmann

Personnel: Nicolas Masson (tenor and soprano saxophones, clarinet), Roberto Pianca (guitar), Emanuele Maniscalco (drums, piano)
