Carter, Kent / Gianni Lenoci / Bill Elgart: Plaything [VINYL] (NoBusiness)

Label: NoBusiness    
Released in: Lithuania    

This open-minded trio recorded Plaything in October of 2012 at Studio Juillaguet, a recording and dance space located in a rural part of southwest France that is run by Kent Carter and his wife, a professional choreographer. Bassist Kent Carter produced the album, along with the NoBusiness label. Gianni Lenoci and Bill Elgart first met in Evil Rabbit's 2010 Amsterdam music festival. Subsequently Lenoci invited Carter to Monopoli, Italy to do a workshop with his orchestra, which Carter provided material for. The project went well and the session for Plaything was planned. The results are this superb album, balancing free improvisation with melodic impulse in compositions that give the impression calm while yielding intricate interactions on close listening.
