Coming Together: Greater than the sum of their parts
When I heard this band at Cookie's in January, the commanding bass on Plink told me I must have this CD. The keyboards are varied and exquisite, and the percussion -- although that doesn't quite characterize it -- smooth and masterful. I say that, because this artists uses cymbals in a very unique and refreshing way. Not at all brash, it's more like a thread or texture running through the music. This CD will not disappoint, and I agree: This is a very versatile trio.

It's ALL Together
I was fortunate to hear a selection from the CD on our local Jazz Station and then get directions from the DJ on where to purchase Coming Together. Had I not, I would have missed a wonderful experience! What great range, outstanding feeling, and superb talent. Great recording!

EXCITING PIANO AND RHYTHMS
I love this CD. The group is tight and swinging. Jeter Thompson’s inventive and tasteful piano work shines throughout. At the keyboards he got different sounds, electric piano, vibes, even jazz organ The material (originals only) is varied: hard swinging jazz (Funkarama, Look at me), ballads (The last return, Tender-hearted), bossa nova / latin (Brazilian rainbow, Gwenlanny), funk (Plink). “Alone” which lasts 11 minutes is a standout. There is also an updated version of “Kilimanjaro” the Quartette Trés Bien unforgettable classic. The soulful “It’s the way I think of you” reminds me of Paul Mitchell another great (and underrated) pianist.
