My music GPS keeps pointing to bassist Carlos Bica for riveting music. His new release I Am the Escaped One finds him heading in a different direction than the usual guitar trio. This time he's working with German saxophonist Daniel Erdmann and turntablist DJ Sonny James- Illvibe Collective. The result is captivating. Bica is now living in Germany but he's originally from Portugal. Another fine bassist from that country but living in Rotterdam—Gonçalo Almeida—figures prominently in two trio releases on the Clean Feed label: Cannicula Rosa One from The Selva and Opus Caementicum by Cement Shoes. From France, a track from a live trio set led by saxophonist Baba Andrew Lamb stirs up the improv pot.

There are more trios to check out as well: Michael Bisio, Kirk Knuffke & Fred Lonberg-Holm joined forces to create a moving tribute to the late Mike Panico, owner of Relative Pitch Records, while the Polish Quantum Trio debut their new release Red Fog, Stephan Crump, Ingrid Laubrock and Cory Smythe contribute a track from Channels, their latest on Intakt, and Russ Lossing with Michael Formanek and Gerald Cleaver turn familiar standards on Changes.

Add in music from the eclectic drummer & composer Sean Noonan and L.A. cornetist Dan Clucas and this show is a must-listen.
