Album Notes
Nominated for Australian Jazz Bell Awards 2016 - Best Small Jazz Group and Art Music Award Excellence in Jazz 2016.

The stars align! This is the first live recording from Alister, Lloyd and Toby in their 20 year history.

"Live...captures this experienced trio's essence at its best" Eyal Hareuveni The Free Jazz Collective
"This recording finds the trio in stunning form" Michael Prescott Jazzwise

This is a band that reviewers from all over the globe have described as 'captivating' (Sydney Morning Herald, AUS), 'compelling' (Edmonton Journal, CAN), 'dynamic' (Glasgow Herald, UK), 'outstanding' (Swing Journal, JPN), 'superbly forthright' (Jazzwise, London UK), 'thoughtful' (Bad Alchemy, GDR).

This recording has taken us a bit by surprise. In March we asked stellar sound engineer Ross A'hern to record a trio performance at the Sound Lounge in Sydney, and it sounds so great! As Ross describes it, making a live recording is somewhat of a 'slippery eel.' Many things have to come together: a good sounding room, with an excellent engineer and equipment, and the band being consistently 'on song.' For years I have been looking for a recording that captures the energy and interplay that we enjoy together in a live performance setting. With this CD the stars have aligned! We hope you enjoy the results.
