Trio M - Big Picture (Cryptogramophone, 2007) ****

Take a blues-based foundation, add some modern classical lines, a little impressionism here and there, some hard bop and swing and even funky rhythms, jazz harmonies, combined with superb instrumental skills and creative improvizational musicianship which push the boundaries of all the combined genres mentioned above, and you start having an idea what this album is all about, with Myra Melford on piano, Mark Dresser on bass and Matt Wilson on drums. From the very first notes of the first track "Brainfire & Buglight", you will immediately notice that all three musicians play an equal role in creating this varied, intense and captivating music. Just listen to the samples below and judge for yourself.
