Ellery Eskelin: On Great Night...Live on Hatology 683

Ellery Eskelin –tenor saxophone
Andrea Parkins –accordion, electric piano, organ, laptop sampler & grand piano
Jim Black –drums & percussion

A live concert recording at Towson University, Baltimore on December 9th, 2007.

Throughout this set, Eskelin, Parkins, and Black are completely at ease with the core material. Over the years these three have grown into a unit that can bristle and wail; pick up on a melody and swing; or stretch out to whispering textures and scrubbed flutters.

The magic is how they string this all together as a seamless whole with careful listening and poised reflexes. That's been one of the ongoing joys of listening to this trio. Its all about hearing how they have worked together to forge an ensemble sound and then checking in during each ensuing tour or release to find out how they've built on that foundation. That dynamism is in full force here.

We're fortunate that the tapes were rolling this one great evening.
