Clarinetist Lori Freedman brought together 3 distinct trios over the course of 3 consecutive nights with a total of 6 other Montreal musicians for live encounters of improvisation.

Freedman, Lori: 3 (Ambiances Magnetiques)
Label: Ambiances Magnetiques    
Released in: Canada    

Saxophonist Lori Freedman's 2nd release on Ambiances Magnetiques brings together 3 trios of Montreal heavyweights for excellent results and remarkably different results.

"For me, the trio is the ideal formation for improvising music. In general, even numbers imply something known, where odd numbers feel open. "2" can create corners that "3" can melt down, transform. "3" is complete, continuous and infinite. Dynamics move stasis. It's playful.

For 3 consecutive nights I brought together in concert 3 distinct trios, with 6 other Montréal musicians each chosen for their fertile imagination and identifiable musical style. This disc is made primarily from these live encounters recorded during the heatwave of June 2, 3 and 4, 2005 at the Bistro Le Va-et-Vient in Montréal.

Certain musical passages were later re-worked in the studio to "compose" other sonic and textural elements. This latter development was made possible thanks to the magical and mega-inspirational mind of Michel F Côté."-Lori Freedman
