5. Nothing Is As It Seems
7. The Truth Is Out There
SURFACING trio Friedrich - Hébert - Moreno
Jürgen Friedrich - piano
John Hébert - bass
Tony Moreno - drums
The trio Friedrich-Herbert-Moreno has a structured, free-wheeling sound pregnant with personality and panache. This is progressive trio music that should be considered with that of pianists Paul Bley and Uri Caine. Introspectively extroverted. A paradox speaking to an enigma about an iconoclast. This music is a superb, poorly behaved collection that will tickle the fancy of any advant-gardist without running off the more mainstream.
