ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The newest release by this critically acclaimed Trio of veteran improvisers.

RECENT PRESS COVERAGE

“ They enjoy a discernible comfort zone via their often-emotive call and response type exchanges and adventurous fabrications…expressing themselves with the veracity and force of a rumbling freight train.” All About Jazz

“These players know each other inside and out. Their ability to listen and respond to each other fuses them into one large sound.” One Final Note

“These three master improvisors have a level of communication down that most players can only dream about.” Improvijazznation

“Futterman invents both aesthetically and compositionally. His work is entirely his own. His artistry is a symphony of brilliance.” Canadian Broadcasting Company

“This Trio wails from start to finish with well placed interludes of abstract chamber-like ballad work.” San Francisco Bay Guardian

“For those who value jazz experimentation at its most audacious and fiercely committed…” Chicago Tribune

“They enjoy a discernible comfort zone via their often-emotive call and response type exchanges and adventurous fabrications… All About Jazz

“Incredible musicality, expressiveness, and pushing of the boundaries of improvisation…” Cadence Magazine

“Spirited interplay and rich diversity of moods and colors…” Signal To Noise

"This Trio produces timeless free improvising one will likely want to have in their collection. From resounding and furious cascades of sound to utterly beautiful balladry work, this Trio sets the standard for free jazz." Cadence

"For those who entertain comparisons, pianist Joel Futterman, reed man Ike Levin, and drummer Alvin Fielder may fit somewhere in between the Cecil Taylor Unit and latter day John Coltrane. Add to that, the Trio's synergy cannot be underestimated, throughout their riveting progressive/free-jazz works." Jazz Review

“These three never lack fire, but they don’t substitute chops for musicality, and the fire never obscures the beauty…” New Creative Music

“These players know each other inside and out. Their ability to listen and respond to each other fuses them into one large sound.” One Final Note

“Expressive performers comfortable with the genre and vocabulary of free improvisation, who rarely, if ever succumb to cliches” All Music Guide

“They toss musical ideas around like a hot potato…like a conversation full of interruptions and sudden flights into abstraction.” Jazz Times

The band seems to abide by a manifesto that lends itself to making contact with a higher being.” Jazz Review

Indeed, if there’s anything that characterizes this Trio's creative works, it’s the easy and natural move in and out of idiomatic playing – or rather, from one idiom (relatively ‘straight’ jazz) to another (free jazz), as if they were the most natural bedfellows (and they are)."
