TRINE: “+1" (TrineArc Music)

“+1," Trine's second recording, continues further with the trios collective improvisational explorations with the addition of bassist Chris Lopes to the core trio, Jim Robitaille; guitar, Rick Britto; sax, Chris Poudrier; drums.

The musical selections on the CD have the group evolving with a multi- directional compositional palette. One third of the CD allows the quartet to develop many musical devices and textures such as with the pedal point/ drone of: “Passage" and the time sketches of “Walking in New York" and “Time Piece."

Other individual compositional contributions come to the fold with the sectional compositions of Chris Lopes in “Pancake Supper" and “Retro" and the introspective ballads of Jim Robitaille's “Still" and Back To “Bayeux."

Saxophonist Rick Britto brought Thelonious Monk's “Nutty" for the group to dig into for this session, as well as having engineered, mixed and mastered the recording.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
