FAB Trio, The – “History of Jazz In Reverse” – [TUM Records Oy]

The late great Billy Bang on violin in this trio accompanied by Joe Fonda on double bass and Barry Altschul on drums. The trio recorded this album on 12/13/2005 In NYC. Half of the album is unrehearsed improvisations, although I would never have guessed, these professionals make it sound very composed. The first track is the only track I would have guessed as being improvised. It begins in sort of a warm up kind of way as if each member of the trio is doing their drills before going on to the actual song. This album is truly enjoyable and wonderful reflection on Billy Bang’s incredible violin skills.??Excellent liner notes on each member, dedications to Billy and photographs inside too.
