In a world where energy and speed often take precedence, Romain Pilon conquered the networks last year by playing… a ballad. His “slower than slow” version of Lament has been listened to almost 800,000 times on Spotify alone! Turning his attention for the first time to the repertoire of standards, unearthing rare gems from the Great American Songbook and nuggets by Herbie Hancock, Steve Swallow and Miles Davis, he presents the repertoire of his sublime “Falling Grace”, accompanied by the trio with which he recorded it, including Jeff Ballard, drumming goldsmith and regular member of the Brad Mehldau Trio.
Yoni Zelnik : double bass
Jeff Ballard : drums
