Album Notes
“Mingus at his best! Play on brother!”
Keith West The Fusion Intrusion show, KVMR in Nevada City,CA

“The simple power of the trio put at a great high level of refinement and creative capability. Alternating lyric episodes with more rhythmic moments, the ways of double bass, drums and piano interlace with melodic soul and harmonic heart. Coming from the lesson of the past, Simon Fisk Trio’s music is for our present, working for a new listening future. Listen to the magic atmosphere of the opening track Live in the Ideal or the beautiful rhythm inventiveness of A Better Day. True genuine art for those loving good emotions.”
Scazzola Giovanni Pietro - Radio Gold Popular Network – Italy

“Wonderful, probing trio music from an inventive threesome that would rival anything currently on the European scene. Do not underestimate these guys.”
Sammy Goulbourne New Style Radio 98.7fm

“ Bass / piano / drums - it doesn't get much more minimal than that, yet the moods portrayed on this CD are wide ranging and full of depth. Across an array of eleven self-composed tracks, bassist Simon Fisk, pianist Chris Gestrin and drummer Tom Foster have put together one of the finest modern jazz sets I've heard in a long while. The music can be hard driving and challenging, and there's an undercurrent of melancholia to a lot of the material. When the musicians lock into a pattern as they do on most of this album, it's a treat to listen to. Just check out 'Live In The Ideal', 'No Obligation' or 'Everything As It Will' to hear a master class in musicians exploring their genre and each other.”
Stuart Hamilton

“Excellent! What more can I say? Both releases here are brilliant!”
David Kowalski, DJ Jippers

“Simply fantastic. I don't know what else to say about this disc. Our programmers and listeners all enjoy it very much!
Jason Wellwood, CILU 102.7 FM

“While Fisk, Gestrin and Foster are impressive players, they show a maturity that elevates them beyond personal ego; they make each tune paramount. They show a sense of space and looseness that places them in the company of other great young piano trios, including Brad Mehldau’s group and the Esbjorn Svensson Trio. With Trainwrecks, Simon Fisk introduces a new trio that deserves greater exposure; they provide continuing evidence that, along with the few groups that are truly peers, the piano trio is alive and well and still evolving.”
Jazz /03

“...beautiful, forthcoming, and challenging...a recording that begs repeated can only hope that this trio records more music as they continue to challenge musical boundaries.”
Randy McElligot Dec/03

“Simply superlative. World class. I'll place this on the good-stuff CD shelf right next to Ron Carter and Buster Williams. Sweet, soulful and spellbinding. When you play New York, let me know.”
Frank Matheis, WKZE 98.1 FM in NY/CT/Mass.
