about

Original compositions by Tim Stevens and a transcription of Jehan Alain's 'Litanies', originally written for organ in 1937.

'Stevens is an improviser of endless melodic inventiveness and seemingly inexhaustible harmonic knowledge. He is clearly a diligent student of jazz tradition, yet he eschews imitation and cliché... 'Mickets' is a wonderful album which is a welcome addition to the growing collection of releases by this fine ensemble.' - Aaron Searle, 'Music Forum'

'Melbourne pianist Tim Stevens may not enjoy the highest of profiles, but his occasional concerts and and recordings have earned him a reputation as one of our most eloquent piano stylists.
'He has a lovely touch, a melody-aware approach to improvising, and for all his fluency, tends to edit out any superfluous gestures in his solos. He is fortunate in his choice of trio partners, having worked with bassist Ben Robertson and drummer Dave Beck for some six years now.
'This is their third album, and while their last featured free improvisation, this one returns to examining Stevens' attractive compositions. These three are highly compatible musicians, who can achieve a conversational flow in their performances.
'Listen to the way they support each other, whether it's Robertson defining the pulse beneath Stevens' lines, then taking over the soloist's baton while Stevens accompanies him, or Beck knowing when to be discreet, or when to assert himself.' - Adrian Jackson, 'Limelight'
