Lauzier, Philippe / Perkin, Miles / Kuster, Robbie: Today is a Special Day (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    


"The debut album by these young, excellent musicians blends original compositions and improvisations into a dynamic and open contemporary jazz.

This modern jazz trio has a fluid, nuanced sound, and its debut album delivers surprisingly varied dynamics. Through experiments in rhythm, melody and texture, the group finds its own musical identity, in which rock and contemporary chamber music influences meet without being obviously felt. Irradiating curiosity, the open-ended sound of the trio is alluring, as it always offers something new to discover. The playing is articulated, interactive, and it marvelously conveys the creative spirit and collective fun of the three musicians.

Philippe Lauzier, Miles Perkin and Robbie Kuster have been working as a trio for the past year. They perform regularly together and separately in a number of other groups. They recorded Today is a Special Day in December 2005; the title commemorates that day they spent creating together."-Ambiance Magnetiques
