Album Notes
Pianist/Composer Rave Tesar’s musical background is deep and wide ranging. As a result, Rave’s style is a rich blending of classical, jazz and pop, displaying strong technique and an adventurous sense of improvisation. Always a busy freelance musician on the New York jazz scene, Rave has toured and recorded with many artists including: Charlie Rouse, Steve Marcus, Dave Pike, The Istanbul Orchestra, Annie Haslam, Renaissance and Tirez Tirez.

This CD is his latest independent release of all original music. The production quality on this CD is excellent and the compositions are strong and adroitly executed. Rave is joined on this recording by two talented musicians who also have diverse performance backgrounds.

Bassist Kermit Driscoll was a member of Bill Frisell’s band from 1987 to 1996 and has played and recorded with Patti Austin, Bang-on-a-can All Stars, Chet Baker, Don Byron, Dave Douglas, Michael Feinstein, David Johansen, Buddy Rich, The Pointer Sisters, Elliot Sharp, Phoebe Snow, Toots Thielmans, Mel Torme, John Zorn as well as the New York Philharmonic and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra.

Drummer, Bill Tesar has performed and recorded with: Angela Bofill, Sidiku Buari, Bob Berg, Dave Douglas, Mikel Rouse’s Broken Consort, Ellery Eskelin, Jerome Harris, Mark Feldman, Vic Juris, Ned Rothenberg and Tirez Tirez.

Together they weave their way telepathically through a variety of compositional styles, from straight ahead classic Jazz arrangements, ethereal modal soundscapes, a fiery Latin offering and adventurous improvisations.

Walter Kolosky

one of the best albums I have heard this past year
"I have decided that The Rave Tesar Trio's You Decide is one of the best albums I have heard this past year. You Decide is full of inventive compositions, played with great skill and fluidity, that will soon become standards in their own right." - Walter Kolosky- Author of the book Power, Passion and Beauty- The Story of the legendary Mahavishnu Orchestra...

Jason Miles

I really enjoyed it!
It is a very nice piece of work. Good compositions and good production/sound as you had excellent people helping.I really enjoyed it!

Terry Silverlight

It's absolutely fantastic!
I really enjoyed it, and I'll be listening many more times. Bill sound’s great and his chops are at the top of the game. I also really dig the sound of the drums and cymbals. Rave sounds terrific and so does Kermit. Beautiful writing and the recording quality is great.

Frank Pagano

The CD sounds wonderful!
Great playing all around and the tunes are very cool.

Andrew Sterman

I really love this recording
I've listened to this CD a lot -- there's a mysteriously clear and deeply pleasing thread through the whole thing, which may sound like faint praise, but in truth it's a very rare thing and something we need a lot more of in the musical world these days. I really love the recording and the comfortable interplay between the three players.

Mark Berger

I am extremely impressed.
I listened to it once this morning and I am extremely impressed. The playing, the material, and the sound is as good as anything I have ever heard.

Lee Townsend

This CD contains some very strong music and impressive playing. I want to congratulate all of you guys on it.

Vinnie Celenza

I really like this album.
This one swings like crazy. There is a lot of Bill Evans influence in there. I am impressed. Really nice work.

Mike Landy

The music and recording are superb!
