The trio of bassist Torsten Muller, drummer Harris Eisenstadt and trombonist Paul Rutherford performing live at The Center for Contemporary Art in Sante Fe.

Rutherford / Muller / Eisenstadt
The Zone

Rutherford / Muller / Eisenstadt: The Zone (Konnex)
Label: Konnex    
Released in: Germany    

"[...] Eisenstadt and his partners on The Zone are firmly in the category of the former. Recorded in front of an audience in Santa Fe, veteran trombonist Paul Rutherford keeps to soft bursts of notes, bassist Torsten Müller quietly bows and lightly bounces on and off his strings and Eisenstadt spends a lot of time gently tapping on the wooden edge of his drum. Barely perceptible squeaks contribute to the atmosphere, as if someone were scratching nylon with his fingernails. Chicago trombonist Jeb Bishop's liner notes express his admiration for Rutherford and a special appreciation for what's going on among the musicians and builds a convincing argument that you should listen again. Attention paid will be repaid. But this Zone is melody- and groove-free."-Jeff Stockton, All About Jazz
