"There are singers that can sing beautiful songs, and there are singers that can do exciting improvisations. There are few that can do both. From the select few, there is one in Amsterdam who is for years underappreciated: the american jodi gilbert in the new trio, spoon 3, she finds at her side, the evil rabbit creators, Albert Van Veenendaal (piano) and Meinradcard Kneer (bass). With them she has found the perfect collaborators that feel just at home with strong structures as unplanned musical adventures. In the first number on the cd seductive sabotage, is there an immediate hit. ̉No no know no rest /the box / the third arm, shows exactly what this trio is capable of. Van Veenendaal and kneer open strongly, in the manner reminiscent of Paul Bley and Gary Peacock. When Gilbert joins, she improvises a beautiful vocalise (song without text) with kneer. Then the rhythmically strong piano of albert van veenendaal joins, and there emerges a song that for me brings up associations of the german/english cult band Slapp Happy (with singer Dagmar Krause, who also possesses such a clear instrument as gilbert). The next piece, spoons, offers an exciting soundscape with bowed bass and well-placed samples. These are just a few examples of the agility of the trio. Humor, passion, stillness, raw abrasive impro, abstract cowboy sounds (the prairie), gamelan-like prepared piano, unprecedented vocal sounds, ultra-short miniatures, intimacy, wild climaxes, everything is there. And above all, also well-dosed, because the ability to successfully use improvisations at the right moment (and in time) is unfortunately an artform that not everyone understands."-Herman Te Loo, Jazzflits
