ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
fit THE NEW CD/DVD FROM THE MEMBERS OF THE ALISTER SPENCE TRIO
RUFUS RECORDS/UNIVERSAL MUSIC

Alister Spence- piano,samples
Lloyd Swanton- bass
Toby Hall- drums, glockenspiel

Listed in 'Best Jazz/Improv releases worldwide for 2009' The WIRE Magazine (UK).
'This is a massive breakthrough for the Alister Spence Trio; a collective leap of imagination far beyond anything the band has attempted before.’
Sydney Morning Herald

This is the fourth release for this internationally acclaimed group, and once again they are delving deeper into their captivating and highly original musical world.
fit sees the launch of a new project that blends (or ‘fits’) texture, sound scape, free improvisation and editing, while still delivering the strong melody and seemingly effortless interplay that are hallmarks of this longstanding collaboration.
The CD is accompanied by a DVD, featuring the work of film artist Louise Curham, set to the band’s music.
Louise is at the forefront of Australian moving image art. She is highly regarded in the experimental film world for her work using "obsolete media." Her hand-worked Super 8 films reinvent the home movie medium of years gone by, through colour, texture and abstracted image.

fit is another big step forward for the trio, and a worthy successor to their ARIA nominated CDs Flux (2003) and Mercury (2007).
It is no surprise that they have attracted interest overseas.
In 2006 the band played U.K/Canada including the Vancouver and Montreal Jazz International Jazz festivals.
In 2008 they performed at the prestigious Tokyo Jazz Festival.
In June the trio was chosen by Brian Eno along with the Necks and Pivot, to play at the Luminous Festival at the Sydney Opera House.
In 2009 Alister performed with European musicians at the Vilnius Jazz Festival (Lithuania) and club dates in Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K.
And again in 2011.

‘The cutting edge of modern Australia defined’
Sydney Morning Herald
‘Ingenious themes…Spence is certainly a talent deserving wider recognition.’
The Wire, UK
‘Spence has that priceless gift of always leaving you wanting more.’
Jazzwise Magazine, UK
