"This new release is a live recording made in Belfast's Sonic Arts Research Centre in June 2014 and complements a current Babel release Mandalas in the Sky (on which the trio are joined by Paul Dunmall).

Recorded during the Translating Improvisation: Beyond Disciplines Beyond Borders colloquium it's some six years since the trio released The Money Notes. That was two years on from Lost Something, an album that spawned the trio's formidable reputation among free-improv fans, inspiring John Fordham in The Guardian in something of a rave review to compare the trio "to some of the famous odysseys of Cecil Taylor's groups."

The new album arrives a little over a year on from the trio's first performances of Piers Hellawell's 'Sound Carvings, Strange Tryst' which premiered at the Brilliant Corners festival a few months before this recording was made and which then toured to Aberdeen, Glasgow and London.

Bourne/Davis/Kane are an antidote to the designer jazz piano trio that often or not seems the norm these days. Rough at the edges, quite anarchic at times there is a great power and volatility in Matthew Bourne's style, while the framework of the trio is very loose and needs to be given the pianist's free form departures and lurches into the unknown, Dave Kane is the reassuring presence that guides the trio back from the brink.

The only thing I've heard this year that in any way corresponds with this record is the debut of Alex Hawkins' trio. Yet the comparison is only approximate Bourne smashing his way through chunks of chords towards some sort of clarity that the trio more than deliver."-Stephen Graham


Artist Biographies:

"Composer/ Bassist Dave Kane was born in a small town called Bangor in County Down in Northern Ireland. At age 16 he bought an electric bass guitar from a catholic priest for 50 pounds, and began moving his fingers up and down the ' E ' string in local punk and alternative bands. With aspirations of eventually playing on the other 3 strings of the bass, Kane began studying music at a local college with the internationally acclaimed composer and bandleader Brian Irvine. As a direct result of hanging out with Irvine, Kane began to explore the idioms of free improvisation, contemporary jazz, classical music, funk, metal, red wine and general mayhem! Further exploration was required, so Kane rowed across the irish channel on his double bass and studied Contemporary music (essay writing!) at Bretton Hall College of the University of Leeds.

Unfortunately there were no influential teachers there like Irvine, so he learnt how to use a library and subsequently encountered the music of John Cage, Edgar Varese, Cecil Taylor, Barry Guy, John Coltrane, Iannis Xenakis, Charles Mingus, Frank Zappa and John Zorn. Upon graduating from University Kane lived and worked in London for a while trying to get his 'shit together' and playing free music with some British Jazz legends including; Keith Tippett, Paul Dunmall, Elton Dean, Evan Parker, Tony Levin, Mark Sanders, Paul Rogers, Alex Maguire and many other heads! Currently based in Leeds, Kane is a founder member of L.I.M.A. (Leeds Improvised Music Association) and the musical director/ composer for the L.I.M.A orchestra. An ever expanding large improv orchestra featuring some of the UK's finest young musicians inc, Matthew Bourne, Chris Sharkey, Christophe De Bezenac, Petter Fadnes. Other projects include; The internationally acclaimed Bourne/ Davis/ Kane. Dave Kane ( solo double bass + voice ). The Shank Trio (featuring saxophonist James Allsopp and drummer Tim Giles). Didrik Ingvaldsen's Quartet Alpha. Dave Kane's Rabbit Project."
