Album Notes
"Accordionist Will Holshouser makes a convincing bid for recognition . . . enduring compositions . . . dynamic interplay . . . the compositional and instrumental diversity makes for a remarkably broad palette." -- Signal to Noise

"Will Holshouser is the secret weapon in several of the scene's most inventive and engaging bands." -- Time Out New York

"Will Holshouser plays as much accordion as there is to be played." -- Village Voice

Will Holshouser's unusual chamber-jazz trio covers a broad scope, drawing its warmth from accordion folk styles, its energy and swing from jazz, and its quiet surprise from experimental music. As a composer, Holshouser's allegiance is to strong melodic material. The trio features the scintillating improvisers Ron Horton on trumpet and David Phillips on bass.

This CD was recorded live in Faro, Portugal during the Jazz No Inverno Festival in December 2004. The venue was the small, 19th-century Teatro Lethes -- the painting on the CD's cover is from its wooden ceiling (with the addition of a few bees). The trio played without amplification in this beautiful hall designed for acoustic music.
