3’Ain is let down slightly by its lack of cohesion ... However, as a series of musical vignettes, each track stands up well on its own

3,5 Stars for 3'Ain's first EP from Gareth Thomas in the British Jazz Journal!

"The absence of drums contributes to a music that is open and uncluttered, allowing the listener to really appreciate the interplay and musical dialogue between Martini and Maris. But where some rhythmic backbone is required, Otto Kint steps in with his double bass, as in the percussive opening to Njord Puffin.
As an album 3’Ain is let down slightly by its lack of cohesion. Tracks end rather abruptly which can spoil the flow of the overall album ... However, as a series of musical vignettes, each track stands up well on its own."

But isn't that exactly what EP's are for? :)

This Belgium-based trio's five-track EP is boosted by the moodily animated presence of the scintillating Syrian trumpeter Yamen Martini

Leading UK jazz magazine Jazzwise gave 3'Ain's debut EP 3 stars!

" This Belgium-based trio's five-track EP is boosted by the moodily animated presence of the scintillating Syrian trumpeter Yamen Martini; otherwise it's an engaging mix of Arabic-inflected melody, accordion-based Musette, Tango and improv."

For 3'Ain, nothing is impossible, anything can be pretext for music and if their improvisation sends you back to images taken from the 'Quai des Brumes' by Carné and it takes you the urge to whisper ′You have beautiful eyes, you know' to your companion, don't deprive yourself of it! Invitation to travel, dream, contrast, emotions, are at the rendez-vous with this first EP, fignolated by a trio who knows its scales.
A funny review (in french), there should be more like this!
