This trio is basically Bill Frisell‘s home away from home, it seems. If he’s not putting out his own solo album, it seems like you can almost count on something from this trio sooner or later, where he indulges his more straight-ahead jazz tendencies. The joy in listening to a group like this, of course, is in listening for the interplay. These guys are at the tops of their game and have worked with each other so much that they just know what’s coming next. On top of that, listening to Paul Motian drum is an otherworldly experience, for he rarely simply plays rhythm. Rather, he plays color for the other two to dip into. Every thing these guys do is fantastic.
