MODUS FACTOR is a Toronto, Canada based modern electric groove trio led
by in-demand session drummer CHRIS LESSO and features multiple
National Jazz Award-winning trumpet player BROWNMAN ALI and Juno-
winning Sisters Euclid bassist IAN DE SOUZA. The trio's tagline is "electro-ambient improvisational bedlam", which befits their live show well. BUT,
interestingly, this debut recording "The Picasso Zone" is less about mayhem, and more about nuance. Deep interaction and collective musical interplay is the name of the game on "The Picasso Zone". With more than 75% of the recording being improvised, this album is an outstanding, high-minded example of the musical richness that can come from 3 kindred artists when they all create together and move in a singular direction as improvisers. By making enough room for each other, the creations presented on this recording are greater than the sum of the individual parts.
