Album Notes
This Trio Eclectic project has been a long time coming. For the last 15 years, guitarist Duane Allen and myself have been doing 100% improvised performances. Each "tune" representing different styles or moods to contrast the one before. Loops and effects have always been a part of this concept to add to the overall texture as needed. While we enjoy playing as a duo, it's been a lot of fun to add different drummers over the years to round out the group. For this recording we are happy to have drummer Jason Harnell. His use of space and the choices he makes, pair perfectly with our concept.

As for the music, we decided for a recorded project that will have repeated listenings (hopefully), we needed brief sketches to use as vehicles to explore. Now we have 98% improvised music, but that 2% of structure (if you can call it that) gives a foundation for the listener. The spontaneity is still present, as these tunes weren't talked about or rehearsed prior to recording them. What you have here are 3 musicians negotiating each situation as it occurs. Sometimes the choice is to completely play separately from each other and think of the structure and time as flexible. Out of this "chaos" comes order, where if you step back and look at the final canvas, you have an aural representation of a Jackson Pollock like concept. It was a lot of fun to record, and we hope you enjoy the journey it takes you on.

-Dave Goldberg
