An extended and far-ranging acoustic free improvisation from the trio of Ernesto Rodrigues on viola, Phillip Greenlief on tenor sax, and Tom Wafford on violin, recorded live at the Gallery 1412 during the Seattle Improvised Music Festival of 2006. The trio uses ample space and a large pallet of extended techniques that captivate the listener, while never overplaying or losing the thread of their fine dialog. At times sparse and mysterious, at others beautifully lyrical, the ebb and flow of their work results in a rewarding and satisfying example of instant composition.
