MRC Trio: Tribal Dance (2003)
The impressions created by electronic effects and the two electronic instruments carry a wide range. “Slumber Party” moves with typical high energy, as well as with slower, dreamy sequences. Much of the thought that the trio has put into their improvisation comes from a world music influence. Exotic lands and faraway places coexist with traditional spirits. Some parts have more of a jazz swing than others do. The trio’s title track summarizes their adventure. It’s a tour of the world with scenic landscapes that capture it all spontaneously.
