David Haney grew up in Calgary, Canada and has come onto the scene in the past few years with a prolific, well received series of recordings for Cadence Jazz and CIMP. He is in the realm of Free Improv and has a style that is at once thoughtful and spontaneous. Adam Lane and Michael Bisio have been covered in the pages of this blog with no small amount of frequency. They are simply two of the very best advanced improvisational bassists active today.
The resultant three-way dialog brings into play all the technique and imagination these three masters can conjure. Much of the time the two bassist's roles split along the lines of bowed versus plucked, arco versus pizzicato, but not all the time. Their interaction with Haney can become quite dense and is best appreciated if one gives the music the focused concentrated listening it demands. It is the sort of session that takes a fair number of exposures to assimilate. As one listens serially one discovers a wealth of collective strengths and well wrought, well thought out three way melodic counterpoint and timbre contrasts.
