sample the album:
"The 3dom Factor is a group made up of drummer Barry Altschul, a veteran of highly influential groups with Paul Bley, Anthony Braxton, Chick Corea and Sam Rivers, among others; saxophonist Jon Irabagon, one of today's leading young players particularly known as the leader of his own groups and as a member of Mostly Other People Do the Killing; and bassist Joe Fonda, Altschul's companion in the FAB Trio (TUM 28) with late violinist Billy Bang, a veteran of Anthony Braxton's groups and a leader or co-leader of many of his own ensembles.
After its first album, The 3dom Factor (TUM 32), the trio has grown together as a true group through frequent performances. As a result, whereas the earlier album featured Altschul's compositions, their second album, Tales of the Unforeseen, focuses on collective improvisation. The new album was recorded in New York City following another Northeastern tour by the trio and was put together by Altschul as a suite of spontaneous improvisations and versions two borrowed compositions very familiar to Altschul from his past, Thelonious Monk's "Ask Me Now" and Annette Peacock's "Miracles"."-TUM
