Snétberger, Ferenc: Titok

Hungarian guitarist Ferenc Snétberger is fairly new to the ECM Records roster, making a huge impact with his solo debut In Concert a few years ago, but is now back in a big way with a trio that also features drummer Joey Baron and double bassist Anders Jormin. Their debut together is titled Titok, which is comprised of 13 tracks of inspired arrangements and plenty of sizzling musical interplay between the three players. From the outset, Baron's steady rhythms allow Snétberger & Jormin to weave some incredible melodies around each other, which you can hear on "Cou Cou" and the alluring title track. Snétberger's gorgeous acoustic & classical guitar explorations are absolute ear candy on pastoral cuts "Orange Tango", "Rambling", and "Álom", with Jormin alongside every step of the way with his cavernous bass grooves. As daring as some of these compositions are, there's a certain subtlety that is also quite refreshing, as none of the players goes too far out into charts unknown but still manage to dazzle nonetheless. To really hear them let loose, check out the wild improv of "Clown", and the closing Flamenco styled number "Inference" is Snétberger at his most lush and tender, his chops impeccable but the emotion that pours from his fingers just beautiful.

Titok is a lovely little album with a nice mix of more exploratory pieces as well as shorter, charming compositions. Let's hope we hear more from this dazzling trio in the years to come.
