We love 'Tri', the new album from the Milevska Trio. Let's face it, it's not easy for jazz harpists to capture the attention of the wider jazz world - if most classical harpists had started out in jazz and then switched, we wouldn't have that many great concert harpists either. There still isn't really an easy way to "study jazz harp"; the best jazz harpists have studied with other jazz musicians, then applied it to the harp.
Rossitza Milevska, with her background in jazz piano as well as classical harp, and her colleagues Fred Lacroix and Cédric Le Donne already have an impressive list of awards to their name. 'Tri' is a compelling and multifaceted mix of original compositions, witty classical references, samba/Latin jazz, and even folk music from Rossitza's native Bulgaria. It's a great example of a strong harp lead line combined with quirky vocals, and a sensitive, filigrane rhythm section that beautifully complements the harp sound.
You can buy Tri, of course, from your no.1 hot harp recording source: the Camac e-boutique.
