premiera polska: 1991-11-09
opakowanie: Jewelcaseowe etui
Jan Garbarek's fourth solo album.
After two quartet releases, and one quintet (same Garbarek's quartet plus Bobo Stenton on keyboards) and two ECM albums, Garbarek changed his band's format to trio. Guitarist Terje Rypdal is gone and Finnish drummer Edward Vesala came instead of Jon Christensen.
The Allmusic review by Brian Olewnick awards the album 4½ stars and states, "Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek took several intriguing stylistic turns early in his career, none more extreme than that shown on Triptykon... an expressionist trio drawing on both free improvisation and Scandinavian folk tunes, roaring, stumbling, and reeling, evoking an aural equivalent of Edvard Munch. Garbarek's work on all his reeds is assured and imaginative, even as the context is often dark and bleak... Highly recommended".
