Recorded in studio in 1995, this is the first CD by this improvising trio performing without guests. The band’s praxis at this time might be of interest. We’d rehearse standards; well: more like interesting obscure tunes by the known masters. And we’d rehearse riffs and heads of our own. In particular, lisle and Donald would meet on their own and get into grooves for hours. Then in performance and in the studio for both this and the next CD, Never Was, the trio would improvise from start to finish. But as a result of the rehearsals. All kind of group congruences would occur “spontaneously” that we could lock into……… And Lisle’s bass was the central fulcrum……. From Cadence Magazine: “ The first two thoughts I had upon listening to this fine disc were how much it reminded me of Trio Air and how fine the rhythm section is. Messrs. Ellis and Robinson work marvelously together and separately, never intruding upon the music, never failing to help advance the composition. Donald Robinson is one of those players who blends so perfectly into the music you don’t always realize how inventive a musician he is. …. The resemblance to Trio Air is found in the spaciousness of the group’s sound, in the way the pieces are group conversations and not three soloists who happen to be playing together. What We Live is just the right title for this trio’s production.
Lisle Ellis (acoustic bass); Larry Ochs (saxophones); Don Robinson (drums)
