Album Notes
Trio Encompas was rehearsing when this disc was recorded as part of the RPM Challenge. Much of the music on this disc was completely improvised.

Jonathan Blakeslee was active in the free music scene in Portland, OR, before returning to his New England roots. Jonathan listens to a variety of music, drawing a great deal of inspiration from Dutch Avant Garde players.

Mike Walsh is one of the busiest drummers in the New England area, serving as the first-call drummer for most of the better seacoast area bands. A full-time teacher and performer, Mike has established himself in a number of genres.

Thom Keith is an avocational musician. He is schooled through listening to a wide variety of Jazz, preferring the dirtier sounds of David S. Ware and David Murray among contemporary players.

Cadence (Brad Winter)

It has the kind of limber strut of an early David Murray date...
For their eponymous studio release (Avant Coast 3), Trio Encompas delivers a similar program [to Live on the Vaughn Mall]. But they give the repeated tunes a different feel. For example, they impart Jetlag Blues with the kind of limber strut of an early David Murray date--it's a couple notches below in terms of technical facility but that's the feel, the same kind of intense motivic grinding. The spacious, almost airy Continental Drift is a nice changeup. And I dig the slowly unfurling groove on Sunspots and Uncle. Overall, I think I prefer the live date, but both are worthy.
