“a culinary as well as a cultural landmark" Mayoral Proclamation, City of New York 1987



“The trio's name “Open Loose" refers not only to its musical style, but to Mark Helias' compositions which are written with plenty of space in them, and are designed to be interpreted openly and loosely. They allow for seamless transitions between composed passages and improvisation, never easy to achieve. This threesome fully exploits the creative possibilities of the compositions, never opting for a clichéd theme-solos-theme format. The group has the knack of starting with a rather loose - sometimes even ramshackle - piece and slowly allowing it to evolve until it emerges as a tight theme. Open Loose has been touring for six years and has released three CDs." Cover $10 www.markhelias.com
