Emphatic, profound and absolute.

About the Album

As a member of Jack DeJohnette's touring band for the last several years, pianist George Colligan has developed a striking and powerful musical rapport with the legendary drummer that serves this, his 24th album as a leader, extremely well. With DeJohnette and virtuoso bassist Larry Grenadier, Colligan's ten original compositions positively soar from the deep and masterful interpretations of this incredible trio. "The Endless Mysteries" displays three peerless improvisors at the top of their game and marks a significant moment in time for the classic piano trio.
