First Meeting

We hope that listeners will hear in the music recorded here that it is
the spontaneous gesture made within a context of close interactive
listening, i.e. the improvisational chamber-jazz approach, that this trio
most values. But most importantly, we hope that our listeners will
enjoy the results of this first meeting.

Sometimes tunes re-emerge from earlier years in a musician's imagination, reasserting themselves into the present scene, bringing both resonances from the past and a renewed vitality for the present. And sometimes new pieces emerge from a musician's imagination that, despite their newness, nevertheless seem to connect to the style, the musical language, or the mood of earlier half-forgotten, half-remembered tunes. Both kinds are offered in this new set from the Atlantic Jazz Trio, and we offer them in the hope that both our old and new friends will find in them moments of enjoyment.

With two studio albums and a number of tours behind them, this trio of award-winning musicians took the chance to do a live recording. As all players and listeners know, performing music live is playing ‘without a net’ – one cannot stop a take, one cannot rewind. Because of that fact, as players and listeners also know, there is a special atmosphere of excitement, a special intensity, when recording improvised music live; it is music in and of its moment.
