Excerpt from the booklet
In 1998 the French Rive de Gier jazz festival resolved to open its programming policy to some of the major representatives of America´s current jazz avant-garde. Among those thus invited to perform in France for the first time, were Rob Brown and drummer Lou Grassi´s sextet with Wilber Morris on bass. This was a perfect opportunity for the legendary MARGE record label to get involved again with the most vivid actuality of a music that keeps asserting its vital necessity, notwithstanding what is regarded as legitimate jazz today. The end result is this CD by a never previously heard Rob Brown trio. (…)
Completely improvised within a couple of hours in a vaulted cellar on Rue du Faubourg Saint Antoine in Paris, the music on these seven tracks is the spontaneous outcome of an immense aptitude to reciprocal listening, allowing the individual responses to flow together instantly. (…) An aesthetically unbound jazz played by three most musical individualities at their creative apex.
