- 180g DOUBLE VINYL IN GATEFOLD SLEEVE - NUMBERED LIMITED EDITION OF 1,000
WITH THREE BONUS TRACKS
Drummer Antonio Sanchez convened three separate trios of brilliant musicians for this recording. Three extremely different musical ideas, developed and entrusted to six sensitive, outstanding companions. The pieces featuring BRAD MEHLDAU and MATT BREWER are two original tunes by Sanchez plus a revived standard, Miles Davis' “Nardis”, renamed “Nar-this” here. Mehldau, obviously much in evidence, stands out against Sanchez and Brewer’s flowing rhythms while sailing through Miles Davis' tune as well as “Constellations” and “Big Dream”, both by Sanchez.
The same pattern applies to the other two groups: the trio with JOHN SCOFIELD and CHRISTIAN McBRIDE opens with a gorgeous remake of Wayne Shorter’s “Fall”. The ambiance is different, the mood is different: “Three Times Three” shows its second personality, portrayed by Sanchez through two original pieces, “Nooks And Crannies” and “Rooney And Vinsky”.
The last of the three trios stars JOE LOVANO and JOHN PATITUCCI. Flowing out to us are “Leviathan” and “Firenze”, two original tunes, whereas the grand finale is entirely given up to the great Thelonious Monk’s “I Mean You”. For the bonus tracks on this special limited edition Sanchez delivers three brilliant and breathtaking previously unreleased drum solos, recorded in New York in December 2014 at Avatar Studios.
