You may or may not know my love for trumpet trios, my admiration of Kahil El'Zabar, Lester Bowie and Malachi Favors, but here it is. This was the initial Ritual Trio, but then Lester Bowie passed away. They recorded one album : The Ritual, playing the Art Ensemble's composition "Magg Zelma". When browsing the internet last night, I came across this download, which I want to share with you. It's a bootleg recording of high quality, recorded for a German radio station, bringing new improvisations by this excellent trio: great music, soulful, modern, open and free.
