  • Description

    When self-taught French-born pianist Jean-Michel Pilc moved to New York City in the 90's he quickly assembled a rhythm section of extraordinary skill. With François Moutin on bass and Ari Hoenig on drums, the now-legendary ensemble quickly established itself as one of the most important groups in the form. They deliver dynamic and engaging reflections on the expressive power of collaborative improvisation with complete instrumental mastery and superior musicality.

    Their latest release (the trio's first recording in 12 years) - YOU Are The Song includes only first takes. It is recorded without any preparation and is an honest reflection of what this trio is all about.
    "Instead of talking about music, we let music talk through us. Rather than playing music, we let music play us. In lieu of playing a song, we become the song and invite all of YOU to do.

    "This remarkably intuitive trio has the ability to collectively bend the harmonic and rhythmic content of familiar jazz standards like taffy......it's like watching the Flying Karamazov Brothers tossing bowling pins back and forth from across the stage." - Bill Milkowski - JazzTimes
