This isn’t a themed record, or a composition project. I wanted to strip it down to the bare essence of what we do every day as jazz improvisers. Guitar trio is a wide open format, it hasn’t been nearly as well explored as a piano trio.
We recorded in one room, in one day. There is a very earthy, natural sound to this record. Rodney Whitaker and Gregory Hutchinson are one of the iconic rhythm sections of our time. They helped define the jazz esthetic of my generation. Rodney and Greg are masters of the highest order, their chemistry when they play together verges on telepathy. These men are constantly orchestrating the music, endlessly creating.
