O’s Notes: German pianist and composer, Florian Hoefner, polished his chops in the jazz Mecca of New York City before settling in Canada where he has starred with his quartet.“First Spring“marks the debut of his trio with bassist Andrew Downing and Nick Fraser on drums and a unique presentation of Modern Jazz. We liked the deliberate, punctuated beats on ‘Calvary‘. There are lots of tempo changes and layers of texture with Hoefner standing out on ‘The Maid On The Shore‘. They will take their act on a global tour this year but this recording serves as a strong representation of the music and mind of Florian Hoefner, music that you should welcome.
