…This long-running trio, which has recorded for ECM, recently released a fine album called Colour on Sunnyside Records…“The Limp” has a serpentine bass ostinato and a deceptively simple melody, suggesting a folk song. But Fort’s unpacking of the theme is precisely calibrated, at once delicate and determined. It’s a smart performance and a good indication of what Colour is all about.
