    • as featured last week
    • The album is based on the 15-year relationship between Ernesto Jodos and Barry Altschul. They met in Buenos Aires through a mutual friend and did several concerts together in 2005. Altschul returned several times to Argentina, and on each trip, there were more concerts, tours, and even a quintet recording (still unreleased). In 2017, after a series of concerts in Buenos Aires, they decided that it would be very good to do a piano trio recording. The bass player had to be found, to which Altschul responds: “We can have any bass player we want.” A year later, a series of concerts with Mark Helias, triggered an email: “Dear B: I found the bass player.” Almost as a joke, since Altschul and Helias have a musical relationship that exceeds 40 years….

The name UMA comes from the South Estonian Seto dialect and means ‘own.’ Both musicians are classically trained and mix purely produced sound with live electronics, creating a meditative float somewhere between new age, ambient, electronica and the subtle, cool tones of ECM-style jazz.

    • The first is cheerful, although it has moments of reflection, it tends to go towards the light. On the other hand, the second is more reflective, with more intimate climates. If there is something that unites the two, it is that they are very colorful, with singing melodies that go through intense harmonic movements, and always full of rich interaction. Each piece has a particular job, and the names of them are what they evoke.
