"Ugly Beauties is the self-titled debut CD of Toronto-based master improvisers pianist Marilyn Lerner, cellist Matt Brubeck and drummer Nick Fraser. Recorded in the summer of 2008 at the Glenn Gould Studios at CBC Toronto, the 15 tracks feature both partially written and totally improvised music with composition contributions from each member of the trio.

The trio explores the terrain between jazz, contemporary classical music and improvisation. Piano, cello and drums interweave to create an boundless palette of texture and mood, and the breadth of sonic experimentation at times renders the three instruments indistinguishable from each other.

Lerner, Brubeck and Fraser possess an uncanny synergy and improvisational virtuosity, with allows the music to remain free as it circulates effortlessly around groove, abstract lyricism and harmonic exploration; a compelling listen!"-Ambiances Magnetiques
