Album Notes
Personnel: Earle Brown, tenor saxophone; Joe Williams, drums; Dan McNaughton, bass and leader.

Dan formed Spider Trio in 1997 in New Orleans, in order to perform his jazz compositions which express his love for a wide range of music, from funk to modern classical. The band is now based in Chicago, and the current lineup consists of Dan, Bryan Pardo on reeds, and Tim Keenan on drums.
Another recent project of Dan's is the modern klezmer band Into The Freylakh, led by Bryan, whose self-titled first cd is also available through CD Baby. Into The Freylakh's repertoire ranges from traditional songs to original compositions, among them Dan's "Lenox Road."

The second Spider Trio cd, Presences, with Bryan and Tim, is out and for sale on CD Baby--check it out at http://cdbaby.com/cd/spidertrio2.

The next Spider Trio show will be at Mother Fool's Coffeehouse in Madison, WI starting at 8pm. Email the band for more details.

Here are two reviews of "Permission":

"The band incorporates a New Orleans type vibe . . . yet the musicians also skirt the boundaries of modern jazz via hearty soloing and three-way dialogue. Hence, a sense of intimacy prevails as the trio's balanced and at times loose interplay enhances the often bluesy and impassioned lines, strong soloing and subtle themes. . . through it all, the musicians perform with a zealous demeanor as the personalized chemistry and tight-knit ensemble work shines forth in impressive fashion."

--Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz (www.allaboutjazz.com), February 2001

"The music on this CD resists easy categorization . . . [composer and bandleader Dan McNaughton] explores different rhythms, including skewed versions of reggae and swing, and he explores the sparse trio format in a manner that stresses independent lines working with and against one another. Thus, this is not simply a saxophonist in front of a rhythm section, but rather a true trio, somewhat reminiscient in concept of the great Air unit of years past. . . The leader's concept works well and the three musicians manage to portray a broad range of moods, rhythms, and techniques, with a great deal of variety."

--Piotr Michalowski, Southeastern Michigan Jazz Update (www.semja.org), June/July 2001
