Known for using "composition as a guidepost rather than a predetermined path" (All About Jazz), the François Carrier Trio features three of Canada's most respected improvisers. Founded in 1990, the Juno award-winning, Quebec-based group has recorded for labels such as Naxos Jazz and Justin Time, and collaborated with special guest pianists Steve Amirault, Uri Caine, Jason Moran, and Bobo Stenson. Now, for the first time, these "advanced musicians who refuse to settle for the status quo" (All Music Guide) have documented the raw exuberance of their live performances on record, with seven improvisations and two compositions from their 2000 Canadian tour.

"The interaction among these three players reveals literacy with the post bop and free music continua, but it's not the sort of free-quoting postmodern multilateralism that characterizes the Dutch or downtown New York schools, for example. Play is more about listening and responding, developing ideas together and then not hesitating to move on when the right time comes. Not an easy feat, but these involved improvisations pull it off with intelligence and style." — All About Jazz
