ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Bob Ravenscroft Trio’s new album hits new improvisational heights, literally. CrossCurrents (Ravenswave Recordings) is an emotional foray through seven originals that invoke feelings like the opening “Unsettled” — an 8-minute track marked by edgy piano exploration and passionate bass riffs — and other succinctly titled titles such as “Foreboding,” “Beguilement” and “Tensility.” These descriptors are apt explanations of what the music creates for listeners…they captivate, distract, calm and a whole lot more. It’s a challenging whirlwind of emotions and yet another extension of Ravenscroft’s recent exploration of the musical unknown.
Over the last couple months, Bob Ravenscroft has been busy with his new three piece, Inner Journeys, which sometimes even performs with a video improviser as a fourth part of the ensemble…another album is already in the works.

Great CD!
For people who are looking for a logical progression for where Jazz should be in 2010, look no further. In a period where so many Jazz "artists" seem to want to sound like it is still 1950, the Ravenscroft trio shows amazing musicianship, maturity and a use of dynamics that is exceptionally rare. You can tell that all 3 players know the history of the art form, but conversely are able to sprinkle a bit of history over very modern free improvisations. Robert Schuh, the drummer, has some of the most diverse arsenals of sound that I have ever come across before. He is also capable of extreme dynamic changes. Millhouse and Ravenscroft have some amazing moments in some all duet settings also.The 3 break off into changing duets, all solo instruments and amazing 3 way versatility that is refreshing to say the least. Both this and Intersections CDs are great listens. Don't let the term "Free Jazz" frighten you away if you are usually into more straight ahead music because the musicality shines through and the ego less playing of all the participants is 2nd to none. It is apparent that all 3 of these gentlemen have spent a great deal of time playing together. If you want to hear some amazing music, check them out!
