descriptions, reviews, &c.
"Not much had been heard from the trio since the late 1970s. An avant-garde jazz band based around stringed instruments, they were considered unusual even on the highly experimental 1970s New York City loft scene. The Revolutionary Ensemble is a cooperative trio made up of three very individual musicians. They mixed chamber music with free jazz and funneled it all through the philosophy of the AACM. Their reputation, spread mostly by word of mouth, was based on their startling live performances. Most of their recordings were on small and often times hard to find labels. Fast forward to 2004 and suddenly they re-emerge, seemingly out of nowhere. The album is a mature output from this seminal band. The time apart seems to have cemented the group's focus and direction. For three musicians, each with great individual accomplishments, to subsume their egos and merge into a group sound this strong is rare. For it to happen after 25 years apart and come out sounding fresh and assured is remarkable."-Pi Recordings
