Album Review

ARC Trio – “Triptych Mirror ” – [Circumvention Music]

Jawbone   5/7/2007   CD, Jazz

Cocktail jazz with a twist (shaken, not stirred). A few of the shorter tracks on ???Triptych Mirror??? border on cocktail jazz, but don???t let that stop you from exploring the excellent debut release of ARC Trio on Circumvention Music.

The two 10 minute tracks (#4 & 6) are the most adventurous and interesting, by far. They weave through different textures, utilizing the extreme reaches of the sounds that a simple piano trio are capable of. Tracks #1 & 2 rip, also, with the subtle urgency that dominates this mostly low key disc. Throughout, the playing is kept loose, but not too tight. Tight, but not too loose.

These guys are each involved in multiple projects in multiple genres down San Diego way, and its obvious they are all consummate musicians with a lot to say.

Mojitos, anyone?
