Refreshing trio...

GeoMac

The obvious comparison is the Avishai Cohen Trio; but, on repeated listening, you realise that Phronesis have more to offer and are their own men. A certain amount of riffing is required in order to execute syncopated rhythmic groves and Cohen's Trio often ends up simply bashing out a riff, often with no real melodic centre. Here Phronesis are different. Similar rhythmic groves emerge, but there is a great sense of melody and, quite frankly, Phronesis have better chops. The only thing that might put some listeners off is the sheer aggressiveness of some of the improvisation, some of which is quite lengthy (e.g. Zieding), and the aggressive staccato rhythms and execution. Suits me but maybe not others. Nicely recorded too.
