"Live...captures this experienced trio's essence at its best" Eyal Hareuveni The Free Jazz Collective
"this recording finds the trio in stunning form"
Michael Prescott, Jazzwise

This recording has taken us a bit by surprise, but in a very good way. In March we asked Ross A'hern to record a trio performance at the Sound Lounge in Sydney, and it sounded so great! As Ross describes it, making a live recording is somewhat of a 'slippery eel.' Many things have to come together: a good sounding room, with an excellent engineer and equipment, and the band being consistently 'on song.'
For years I have been looking for a recording that captures the energy and interplay that we enjoy together in a live performance setting. With this CD the stars have aligned! We hope you enjoy the results.

Lloyd Swanton - double bass
