Trioisms (Arced Records)
By Eric Elias
Trioisms presents Dan Arcamone, Rich Zurkowski and Tom Ash on guitar, bass and drums respectively. The trio is modern, swinging, soulful and full of energy. Arcamone presents himself as both a gifted composer and as a gifted guitarist. As a player Arcamone negotiates even the most complex harmony with a relaxed yet flawless style. He employs some pretty interesting lines and seamlessly blends those with chords throughout. One wonders if he ever misses a note, as Dan's lines seem to flow effortlessly. As a trio, it is difficult to describe how in the pocket" the band is, but Zurkowski and Ash are the perfect rhythm section, blending groove, chops and sensitivity. The 13 pieces are all originals by Arcamone. All are complete compositions with impressive harmonic structure and a clear melodic sense. Groove also plays a large part with each tune as well. With Trioisms, Dan Arcamone and co. demonstrate that they have all the right stuff: sound, chops, arrangement and groove. Trioisms is worth a listen.
Personnel: Dan Arcamone: Guitar; Rich Zurkowski: Bass; Tom Ash: Drums
