"Three 'heavy weights' of American jazz Oliver Lake, Reggie Workmann and Andrew Cyrille make up the band Trio 3. For their 5th album on Intakt Records they have added pianist Jason Moran to the line-up. The 38 year old 'rising star' on the current scene is after Irène Schweizer and Geri Allen the third guest piano player cooperating with Trio 3. In the summer of 2012 Lake, Workman, Cyrille invited Jason Moran for a week long residency in New York's Jazzclub 'Birdland', before they recorded the CD "Refraction - Breakin' Glass" in Brooklyn Recording Studio.

The recording leads straight into the centre of what is know as 'Great Black Music' and celebrates the enormous diversity which is jazz today. Jason Moran has contributed a few compositions and shines next to these 3 giants of modern jazz as an expressive and techniclly highly skilled and intelligent pianist, who is carrying the flame of jazz into the 21st century.

On the last album of Trio 3 they were collaborating with Geri Allen on a celebration of Mary Lou Williams (Intakt CD 187). You could hear some fantastic funky playing on that release, which can be find here as well. But Jason Moran seems to function also as a catalyst for a more modern approach. On Moran's composition "Refraction" Oliver Lake turns into a rapper by presenting his poem "Breakin' Glass" in a rhythmical style. The music and the words start to dance, which can also be heart on "High Priest", deeply rooted in Soul and Gospel. This composition by Andrew Cyrille is a homage to the saxophonist David S. Ware, who died last year, where the music rocks and swings in the most incredible way."-Intakt


Artist Biographies:

"Reginald "Reggie" Workman (born June 26, 1937 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American avant-garde jazz and hard bop double bassist, recognized for his work with both John Coltrane and Art Blakey.

Workman was a member of jazz groups led by Gigi Gryce, Roy Haynes, Wayne Shorter and Red Garland. In 1961, Workman joined the John Coltrane Quartet, replacing Steve Davis. He was present for the saxophonist's Live at the Village Vanguard sessions, and also recorded with a second bassist (Art Davis) on the 1961 album, Olé Coltrane. After a European tour, Workman left Coltrane's group at the end of the year. Workman also played with James Moody, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Yusef Lateef, Pharoah Sanders, Herbie Mann and Thelonious Monk. He has recorded with Archie Shepp, Lee Morgan and David Murray.

He is currently a professor at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City, and is a member of the group, Trio 3, with Oliver Lake and Andrew Cyrille."

"Andrew Charles Cyrille (born November 10, 1939) is an American avant-garde jazz drummer. Throughout his career, he has performed both as a leader and a sideman in the bands of Walt Dickerson and Cecil Taylor, among others.

Cyrille was born on November 10, 1939, in Brooklyn, New York into a Haitian family. He began studying science at St. John's University, but was already playing jazz in the evenings and switched his studies to the Juilliard School. His first drum teachers were fellow Brooklyn-based drummers Willie Jones and Lenny McBrowne; through them, Cyrille met Max Roach. Nonetheless, Cyrille became a disciple of Philly Joe Jones, who in some performances such as Time Waits used Cyrille's drum kit.

His first professional engagement was as an accompanist of singer Nellie Lutcher, and he had an early recording session with Coleman Hawkins. Trumpeter Ted Curson introduced him to pianist Cecil Taylor when Cyrille was 18.

He joined the Cecil Taylor unit in 1964, and stayed for about 10 years, eventually performing drum duos with Milford Graves. In addition to recording as a bandleader, he has recorded and/or performed with musicians such as David Murray, Irène Schweizer, Marilyn Crispell, Carla Bley, Butch Morris and Reggie Workman among others. Cyrille is currently a member of the group, Trio 3, with Oliver Lake and Reggie Workman."

Since then, he has released eight other albums-with his trio The Bandwagon, solo or leading other ensembles-and appeared in about 30 albums as a sideman. He has garnered much critical acclaim and won a number of awards for his playing and compositional skills, which combine elements of post-bop and avant-garde jazz, blues, classical music, stride piano, and hip hop, among others."
