Clarinetist Ben Goldberg leads a trio with electric guitarist John Schott and Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn for a lyrical and beautifully reserved album of improvisation that uses a subtly spacious approach to creating environments for informed interchange.

Almost Never

Goldberg, Ben / John Schott / Trevor Dunn: Almost Never (Nuscope)

Label: Nuscope    
Released in: USA    


"Almost Never, which features the first all-American lineup on the nuscope label, is perhaps clarinetist Ben Goldberg's most beautiful and sensuous disc. The disc, which was recorded at Northern California's OTR Studios by none other than Cookie Marenco, also features electric guitarist John Schott and Mr. Bungle bassist Trevor Dunn, long-term partners of Goldberg's musical adventures. All three musicians play exquisitely on this disc.

According to Art Lange in the liner notes, "Each member of the trio emerges into the open in different situations; in this context these are not really 'solos' but constructive elements that define the characteristics of the surrounding space. Individually and together they piece together the outline of the music with an eye (and ear) for clarity of vision and measured proportion in design and detail. Even so, this music is deceptive, with a minimum of empty gesture and a seeming simplicity of shape that appears inevitable but is actually spontaneous and fluid."-Sam Prestianni, Jazziz Magazine
