Jeff Ballard has been for decades an obvious first choice for some very important names of the modern jazz scene. A stronger desire for more freedom in compositional and experimentation terms brought us Time’s Tales with the collaboration of Lionel Loueke – guitar and voice – and Miguel Zenon – alto saxophone who together with Jeff Ballard form a remarkable trio. I do like what I hear!
