Live at Trinity Church
While many recordings in this genre have centered around superhuman agility, Live also focuses on explorations of harmonic space and rhythmic freedom. For a live record, this material tends to be surprisingly tight and deliberate; but, of course, the setting lends itself nicely to the exciting unpredictability of improvisation. Live is quite well-recorded, with intimacy and warmth. At times the vocal passages can be painfully reminiscent of recent sugary-sweet outings by the Metheny Group, but otherwise the instrumental performance is superlative.
