Play "The Trio"

Reincke / Huges / Popple: Play

Label: FMR    
Released in: UK    

"Reincke//Hughes//Popple focus on the music of "The Trio" and thus the compositions of John Surman, Barre Phillips and Stu Martin. Formed in 1969, "The Trio" was one of the most original and inspirational European or European-based bands (Martin and Phillips were American expatriates), whose music has unjustly been forgotten. Their compositions are often short and varied, generally setting specific parameters of rhythm, dynamics, or harmonic lattices. Reincke//Hughes//Popple provide their own original interpretations, using the tunes as a springboard for powerful swinging moments, free improvisations, sizzling duets and unexpected energy explosions."-FMR
