Album Notes
This recording captures the critically acclaimed concert performance ofthree masterful improvisational music artists. For over an hour the Trio mesmerized and captivated their appreciative audience with an outpouring of endless creative energy. This recording expresses the magic of the moment in which the Trio drew their creative energies not only from each other but from their entranced audience. From the very first musical phrases to the very last, the Trio takes the listener on an adventurous and imaginative musical journey characterized by their deep innate sense of connection and close communication that allows each to transform their individual creativity into a single, synergistic musical expression. This is a tight improvisational Trio who produce kinetic, inspired and highly engrossing music created entirely "in-the-moment."

Edward "Kidd" Jordan
The legendary saxophonist Kidd Jordan is acclaimed internationally as one of the true master improvisers still performing today. He was recognized as a jazz maverick back in the 1940s intent on exploring jazz rooted music's outer reaches. In recognition of his great musical achievements, knighthood was bestowed on him by the Republic of France recently where he holds the title Chevalier des Artes et Lettres. Kidd has been a music educator for over 30 years and is an associate professor of music at Southern University in New Orleans where he directs the jazz studies program. Kidd has a discography of over 30 recordings and has performed in festivals around the world including Germany, Netherlands, Finland, France, and Africa. and has been a featured performer with the New Orleans Philharmonic. Kidd has played with a diverse range of musical artists including Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations, Ornette Coleman, Archie Shepp, Sun Ra, Peter Korvald, Fred Anderson, Hamid Drake, William Parker and Cannonball Adderley.

Joel Futterman
Pianist Joel Futterman known for his spirited, highly imaginative, and innovative piano technique is a veteran pioneer into the frontiers of spontaneous, improvised music. He is considered one of the foremost inventive and adventurous artists shaping the creative, progressive music scene today. He has performed across North America and Europe including at such noted music festivals the Visions Festival in New York, The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Berlin Jazz Festival, and the North Sea Festival in Dennmark. He has compiled a discography of over 35 recordings including work with such notable jazz innovators as Jimmy Lyons, Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Joseph Jarman, Richard Davis, Al Fielder, and Hal Russell, as well as Edward "Kidd" Jordan with whom he has had a highly productive association in recent years.

Alvin Fielder, Drums & Percussion
Al is an internationally recognized master percussionist and has been one of the true leaders in improvisational music for over four decades. While Al has performed with many noted be-bop and post-bop jazz artists, his passions have always moved more towards freer forms of jazz music. In 1963 Al and several other Chicago based jazz musicians founded the Association for the Advancement of Creative Music (AACM) in Chicago. After over 40 years of performing professionally, Al still approaches each performance as a challenge and continually stretches himself and those he plays with to explore new territory and elevations. Al has compiled over 20 recordings with such noted artists as Roscoe Mitchell, Muhal Richard Abrams, Ahmed Abdullah, Sun Ra, Dennis Gonzalez, Joel Futterman, William Parker, Clifford Jordan, Wilbur Ware. For a number of years, Al co-lead the Improvisational Arts Ensemble with Kidd Jordan. He has performed at festivals worldwide including Germany, Holland, France, Finland, and Italy.

"I had more fun than anybody in the audience!"
One of the difficult things about appreciating avant- & experimental jazz is translating the multivalent sensory experience of 'being there' to recorded media. This disc, in my opinion, does just that, admirably well. In the first place, the performance itself is powerful: well-paced, inspired, multifarous, & dynamic. According to Jeff Schlanger, the cover artist, the concert 'brought the house down.' Secondly, the concert was well-recorded and the sound quality is state-of-the-art. Finally, the cover painting, improvised simultaneously along with the performance, captures and perfectly complements the musical moment. Avant-jazz is all about feeling, and this performance oozes oodles of it. As Kidd Jordan exuberantly declares before the final encore: "I had more fun than anybody in the audience!...I hope you get something for your soul, 'cause this is what this music is about: some feeling!" Check it out; cop yourself some feel.
