About Michael Musillami and From Seeds

In a career that spans more than 25 years, Michael Musillami has worked extensively as a performer, bandleader/composer and educator...

Musillami and his longstanding trio with Joe Fonda and George Schuller follow 2007's The Treatment (PSR#050607), their critically acclaimed collaboration with renowned violinist Mark Feldman, with From Seeds, the debut of the Michael Musillami Trio +3 featuring Ralph Alessi, Marty Ehrlich and Matt Moran.

This newly formed sextet performs six new, original compositions Musillami conceived specifically for this ensemble. “Composing and arranging all new music for a cohesive group that combines vibes, trumpet, and alto with a guitar trio meant taking things to a whole new level," he explains. “I needed three players with the sound, experience and confidence to not only play this music, but also put their stamp on it without taking away from what the trio does best. Marty, Matt and Ralph were perfect choices."

“Guitarist Michael Musillami has a tone that's impossible not to love. On From Seeds Musillami has expanded his trio by adding saxophonist Marty Ehrlich, vibist Matt Moran and trumpeter Ralph Alessi. That makes for a potent sextet, and the guitarist's writing provides a rich variety of settings." -- James Hale, DownBeat - 4.5 stars
