Dom Minasi Trio: Goin' Out Again The Dom Minasi Trio continues their music quest on their latest effort Goin' Out Again. One who will not be confined to stereotypical confines; Minasi and his artistic crew produce jazz that's hard to classify. Their previous effort, Takin' the Duke Out paid heartfelt and eccentric homage to the great Duke Ellington, by taking a few of the Duke's popular compositions and turning them completely upside down in terms of structure and execution. A guitarist who weaves musical strings in a variety of styles from avant-garde to free jazz, with a hard rock mentality; Minasi and trio are truly expressive and free. This may come at a cost to listeners who are satisfied with the norm, or those who would prefer music without bounds, because Minasi uses both structure and controlled chaos to create his soundscapes.

Goin' Out Again showcases four Minasi compositions as well as standards from Miles Davis, John Mercer, and Thelonious Monk. To give a glimpse into the mindset of the trio, the opening selection "Autumn Leaves" begins with the memorable melody and then transforms into a cacophony of sound that highlights progressive solos from all members of the trio. Minasi's own selections are dynamic and reveal his range and complexity on the unsettling "As The Spirit Moves" and the mood filled "The Day After Next." The trio is as tight as ever and the challenging selections will blow the minds of listeners; for better or worse. Only adventurous and open minded individuals need apply.
