Another Triplicate cd review

A nice review by Rakendra Smit, in the dutch magazine Muziekwereld

Op deze cd horen we drie jonge jazzcats Ellister van der Molen (trompet en flugelhorn), Bob Wijnen (piano) en Johnny Daly (contrabas) samen met oudgediende drummer Eric Ineke. Dit gezelschap zoekt geen nieuwe wegen en volgt geen trends. Ze spelen standards en een aantal mooie composities van trompettiste Ellister van der Molen. Het is traditionele jazz uitgevoerd met vakmanschap en enthousiasme. Virtuositeit wordt gekoppeld aan subtiliteit waarbij alles in dienst staat van het groepsgeluid. Alles vol gevoel en doordacht. Opvallend in het geluid van dit kwartet is het gebruik van de flugelhorn, het zachte klank-karakter van dit instrument wordt door Ellister van der Molen op imponerende wijze ingezet bij unisono spel met de piano in snelle abstracte bopthema’s.

Met deze debuut-cd levert Triplicate, zoals ze het zelf zeggen, een rijke hommage af aan het grote verhaal van de jazz en wat jazz nog steeds kan zijn.

Yet another nice review

Another review (in dutch) of our cd “Three and One”, written by Jacques Los:

Very flattering indeed!

Jeroen de Valk on the Triplicate CD

Ellister van der Molen’s trumpet makes you forget the trumpet. You just hear music, good music with a lot of heart. Notes, weightless and yet confident, dancing on Eric Ineke’s brushes or sticks, creating melodies and intelligent variations on the spot.
As if blowing a trumpet with a warm sound, going through every chord change imaginable and swinging hard are no big deal at all. She’s a poet on her horn and reminds one of other lyrical trumpeters; Chet Baker and Kenny Wheeler in particular.

(Up in jazz heaven, Chet will be proud to hear someone continuing his tradition of lyricism with a rhythm section he would have hired immediately, and a band as a whole who knows how to handle Gnid, one of his favourite Dameron-tunes. Wheeler, who is still very much with us, is honoured with his own ‘Everybody’s song but my own’.)

There is also a touch of swing trumpet in her playing. While visiting her website, I wasn’t surprised noticing she collaborates also with Dixieland veteran Dim Kesber.

In any style, Ellister is herself – a wonderful musician who, hopefully, will continue recording as a leader after this impressive debut.

Three and One available on CdBaby and Itunes

“Three and One” is a very pleasant surprise by three young musicians and an “old hand”. Trumpeter Ellister van der Molen, pianist Bob Wijnen and bassist Johnny Daly had been gigging as a trio, when they sought support of master drummer, conservatory teacher and motivator Eric Ineke as inspiration for their début cd.
Triplicate plus one is a quartet that isn’t about trends but is, instead, driven by pure musicianship and a deep love for jazz music. This deep love is one that connects tradition with a freshness that is rooted in the present.
