A Moment's Liberty is their third release following Morning Glory (Maya, 2011) and Aurora (Maya, 2006). The disc opens with a lengthy (18-minute) Fernández composition "A Moment's Liberty." The pianist, playing solo, favors sumptuous notes and rich balladry. Even after his bandmates enter the tone is inspired and celebratory. Fernández, who like his partners, has never shied away from the scramble of free jazz and improvisation, finds a richness in those sounds between the notesthe unspoken and the silent. Throughout the recording, the maximum is accomplished with a minimalist approach. It's not that there are not eruptions of energy here and there, it's just the introverted, intimate nature of the trio's approach overshadows the unreserved portions.
