With several years together and two acclaimed albums under their belt already, Curios share an empathy and collective insight that has seen them been described as one of the most exciting piano trios in Europe. The Other Place, their third album, and debut for Edition Records, marks the next leap forward in a remarkable creative journey.

Liner Notes
So the moment comes and you launch yourself in there, just hope that something will cradle you and that you somehow don’t get lost, can somehow keep yourself on course to come out the other side even if the observer/listener can’t see how any mortal could possibly do so. But you’re not a mortal, not for this heightened moment anyway, you’re guided by the force, by something elemental or cerebral that can’t possibly be fully understood – by anyone. It’s just there, a wavelength the brave and gifted can tune into, a glimpse into another plane of being. That’s what separates the great from the good, and striving for that is what motor racing – and jazz – is all about. Mark Hughes (Grand Prix Editor, Autosport magazine)
