ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Drop Trio is poised to make its mark in the future of jazz." - Jambase.com, August 2003

"Houston isn't the greatest city in the world for live jazz, but folks like Drop Trio are out to change that. They don't really fit in with the avant-garde, the martini sippers or the purists; they're more for the young cats who like their jazz a bit funked up with lots of energy. Drop Trio is anchored by a rhythm section tighter than the Texas education budget and a Rhodes keyboard that gets pushed to its limits on every cut. Think Medeski Martin and Wood, without their lame DJ, and then add in some elements of bayou funk and acid-tinged San Francisco hipness, and you're close to describing the sound of their instrumental jams." - Matt Sonzala, Houston Press, July 2003

"The atmospheric groove they create seems organic ..." - The Houston Chronicle, June 2003

"If you get a chance to see Drop Trio, do it." - Hubstuff Magazine, June 2003

Unbelievably good - and all improvised?!?
This is the second record I've bought by Drop Trio, and I was totally surprised by it (in a good way). It's a departure from their first record, in terms of sound and approach; but more than that, the record is completely *improvised*. I read about that on the back of the CD ("this CD is entirely improvised") and didn't believe it, but after checking out the band's web site, it seems to be true - the whole record made up on the spot in the studio. If that's true, these guys are mad geniuses. The record is kinda hard to get your head around at first - starts off ambient but then kicks it in the ass by track 2 and barely stops until the end. My fav. track is #5, but they're all pretty unique and good in their own ways. I've never really heard anything quite like it, it's sort of a cross between MMW and Emerson Lake and Palmer, if you can believe that. Way to go guys, I'll be watching you in the future.

Drop by drop it aint no pop.
Three is a perfect number and these guys prove it.No more no less, the insrtaments sound exactly true. Keys bass and drums .An equlateral triangle that will balance on either point .Honest music like this can transend, better drop it in your cd player to damn day!
