Descriptions, Reviews, &c.

"The MMM trio met in September 2018 in Puglia, Italy for a series of concerts.
We decided to leave a trace of our experience!
The recording was done in three separate rooms, somehow in the "dark".
Each musician could follow the others only through the sounds coming from the headphones. The glances have never crossed.

Mutual listening was the strong point.

Experience, respect and enthusiasm for the compositional act created the music.

Enjoy listening!

"-MMM Trio
