Dre Hocevar Trio

Coding of Evidentiality
Clean Feed CF 325 CD

By Ken Waxman

Musically Dre Hocevar is the most generous of leaders. What else would describe the performances on this, his second CD? For while the Slovenian drummer composed all but one of the tracks here, the bulk of the space is given over to the playing of Belgian pianist Bram De Looze and American cellist Lester St. Louis. One track, “Cello Interlude No. 1” in fact, is just that – St. Louis, on his own, sounding out a darkened intermezzo of taut double stops and hardened sweeps. MORE
