O’s Notes: Spanish pianist Ignasi Terraza is well known in Western Europe jazz circles. His style is very lively and out front, reflecting the influence of Oscar Peterson and Ahmad Jamal. His trio for this set includes drummer Greg Hutchinson and Pierre Boussaguet on bass, both highly rated musicians. They play a mix of originals and standards. We liked the mysterious feel of “Van Gogh” and the subtle samba of “My Ideal”. The vibe is very good with enough juice to get your head bobbing and keep you engaged.
