About

This trio has an ever present sense of what is appropriate, switching horns to achieve specific timbral ends. The sound on alto saxophone, drums & bass is enormous and a tad bright; and the clarinet work provides a dark contrast. The trio's improvised lines defy description, so skilled are they at adapting to the situation at hand. Melodies range from the plaintively lyrical to the aggressively harsh -- from simple to convoluted -- with stops at every possible gradation in between.
