- "The Helsinki-based Bowman Trio return with their second LP on We Jazz Records.
Persistence is a strong effort, showcasing the young trio's knack at creating dynamic, sparse and memorable music which carries well the term "loft jazz" occasionally attached to it. Here, drummer Sami Nummela, trumpeter Tomi Nikku and bassist Joonas Tuuri present 9 strong originals, 8 of which are penned by Nummela and one by Nikku.
On the course of the new album, Bowman Trio moves from the introspective, calm moments of Badwater, Mac Elliot and Mä en jaksa to the full swing of The Chase and the solid grind of Persistence. The album closing track Sista sommardagen (The last day of summer in Swedish) is a hauntingly beautiful, delicately breezy ballad. Two years in the making, the album is a testament to the album title and a fine example of a band taking time in developing their sound to perfection."
