All of your favorites, in one place.
This trio features very distinct musical personalities and caught us off guard simply by its appearance at all, but we sure did smile when we heard it as we knew it would pack the goods. Both Zach (percussion) and Doneda (reeds) lay sturdy frameworks with Ielasi (guitar) adding an almost alien warmth to the group sound. Intense sonic impact yet transparent and sparse enough to navigate with alert senses, the whole disc has an ambitious arc that one may miss when caught in the web. Doneda's comments: 'The music unfolds from known materials, offering clues. The fleeting nature of the colors, tones, dynamics and rhythm coalesce and then dissolve. Often, the sound seems to dig in an invisible soil, and then the quest stops, often at a new place, but then another layer appears. Each musician weighing the sounds in the most real sense... perfectly independent in a unique and definitive community without specific roles or hierarchy.' All true.
