Album Notes
Every so often a musical mist solidifies around one common axis forming a sound so unique that it challenges existing ideas to move towards the future. In the past, groups such as The Miles Davis Quartet and The Bill Evans Trio emerged from the mist to transform the jazz genre. Today, it is a PRISM. Guitarist Carl Brooks-Lytle, bassist Micah Jones, and drummer Tony Deangelis have joined together at a time when jazz is met with many elements of conservatism to offer a brilliant palette of musical youth and liberation.

The trio formed in the summer of 1997 and in a brief three-year span developed a style that illustrates a prism's ability to disperse and redirect light by using their airy yet structured sound to evoke feelings of sublety, immediacy and spontaneity.

From the CD Jacket:
"Prism is a trio of young jazz musicians from Philadelphia who have accomplished a remarkable achievement with the production of their debut recording Nomadic Wanderers. Consisting of player still in their twenties, the group has already defined a style and point of view which is their own. They accomplish this, first of all, with a body of original material. Beautifully lyrical tunes, harmonically and melodically inventive, have been contributed by each member. Secondly, these guys are emotionally committed to every phrase they play. The listener can easily sense the care that goes into each note. Next, and maybe most important, they explore, experiment, interact, discuss, and focus their attention not on recreating the styles of their musical heroes, but on synthesizing their influences into their own direction. Finally, they bring divergent and complementary individual styles to the group.
Carl Brooks-Lytle's soulful blues sensibilities, developed through years of playing gospel music in church, add depth and warmth to his thoughtful jazz lines. Tony Deangelis demonstrates both technical virtuosity and an extraordinary imagination, using splashes of sound like an impressionist painter uses color, highlighting and shading each musical statement. Micah Jones (who I think can hear paint dry) seems constantly aware of the overall group sound as he lays it down, frees it up, swings, converses, and compliments... all with impeccable taste. He also contributes wonderful tunes and solos to this disc. The end result of all this is music that is beautifully honest and comes from the heart. Through this recording, Tony, Micah, and Carl have given us a glimpse of who they are. That is a successful recording. I hope the first of many."
