David Friesen Circle 3 Trio: Triple Exposure

Read "Triple Exposure" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

For most, a triangle is the shape that readily springs to mind when analyzing, discussing, and/or conceptualizing a trio. There's no mistaking roles and positions, after all, when there are three clearly defined sides. A circle, on the other hand, offers no beginning, no middle, and no end. In many ways it's a better analog for ...

David Friesen & Glen Moore: Bactrian

Read "Bactrian" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Time and space can take nothing away from certain musical relationships. There are those on-and-off partnerships that flourish regardless of the frequency of encounters and years gone by, and this is clearly one of them.

The connection between bass masters David Friesen and Glen Moore goes back some five decades. It yielded two ...

David Friesen
Waterfall Rainbow
Inner City
1977

Today's Rediscovery is Waterfall Rainbow, from a bassist who garnered significant attention back in the '70s and '80s, but sadly never sustained it for reasons unknown--certainly nothing to do with his talent--and has, in the decades since, remained an active player, but one largely forgotten by the ...

Anson Wright & Tim Gilson: Ukiah's Lullaby

Read "Ukiah's Lullaby" reviewed by Raul d'Gama Rose

The two men, guitarist, Anson Wright and bassist, Tim Gilson enjoy a special relationship. Most duos are close-knit units. In a few very special instances, the two musicians thrive on something uncannily telepathetic. For instance, they will complete each other's phrases without missing a beat or a phrase. Whether they enter behind or on the beat ...

David Friesen and Jeff Gardner: Grace

Read "Grace" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

Duet...

Small places, big faces...The smaller and more intimate the jazz combo becomes, the greater the musical distillation and exposure to the elements of the listener. It is always a high-wire act when jazz musicians reduce to a trio or less. The trio offers the bare minimum of a rhythm section of bass and drums and ...
