"This recording captures the sound of three friends and their instruments, relating, reacting, breathing, listening, and playing. Our first album from this recording, Recurring Dream (Sunnyside 1431), released in April 2017, features compositions. While I love playing compositions with Art and Steve, it is equally amazing to improvise with them. My first introduction to Steve's playing was in the chamber music - like improvisations of his trio with Jimmy Giuffre and Paul Bley; the first time I played with Art we were improvising dance music at a wedding!
At the beginning of this particular session Art suggested that we start with nothing. So after we set up, without a word, we improvised for an hour. This led to a lovely afternoon of mostly first takes, captured beautifully by Systems Two's Mike Marciano. I hope you enjoy this music as much as I enjoyed making it." - Mike McGinnis.
