"... ’Music’ is the name of Held’s new album, and the simple yet meaningful title expresses a self-confidence that Pablo Held has every right to possess. Completely without pretence, and playing with expressive ease, his trio relies completely on the music’s inner strength. Music with its own sound and unique atmospheric mood..."
