  • Description

    Covering many years and reflecting a wealth of experiences, drummer Ted Moore's striking array of compositions meld into a singular, dynamic
    statement on his debut trio recording. With pianist Phil Markowitz - a musical partner since meeting at the Eastman School of Music in the '70s - along
    with the extraordinary bassist, Kai Eckhardt, the trio expands ever outward from the piano trio tradition, utilizing their shared influences of music from
    Brazil and Spain as well as classical music and its forms. Moore also acknowledges his musical inspirations through "Waltz for Chick," for Chick
    Corea, and "Beyond Silence," for Miles & Tony Williams. "Simple Gifts" is Moore's arrangement of the traditional Shaker theme that Aaron Copland
    utilized in "Appalachian Spring." "...a collection of thematically beguiling and rhythmically stunning performances that will excite even the most jaded
    listener." - Mark Holston, Jazziz

    "...Markowitz's effervescent piano rides spryly over Eckhardt's fluid, undulating bass lines...propelled along by Moore's bright, crisp drumwork." —
