INGRID LAUBROCK, tenor sax/ MARY HALVORSON, guitar /TOM RAINEY, drums
"...The trio didn't get trapped for a second in signature style - their sophisticated range and the confidence in the dialogues they have built up over the years allowed them to find ledges and pools where they could linger then get back in to the swim to come up with a refreshingly subversive stream of sonic surprise." Geoff Winston
INGRID LAUBROCK, saxophones/ MARY HALVORSON, guitar/ KRIS DAVIS, piano/ JOHN HÉBERT, bass/ TOM RAINEY, drums
"Abstraction and reification, accentuation and accumulation, laid-back and pushing. The music of this quintet thrives on strong contrasts and the tension they create. The dynamic spectrum is almost taken to its limits, a lot of things are happening simultaneously."
