The Art Of The Improv Trio | Volume 5

Ivo Perelman | Joe Morris | Gerald Cleaver



Our part is one half; listeners make up the other half. Your focused listening and your assessment of the formulation, stories, shapes, meanings, and design — arrived at by your experience with the music — provides the part of our action that completes the process. We work hard to allow our music to remain open to interpretation by every listener. We make music in the present tense of our lifetime, while it might show knowledge of past versions of music, we have no desire to limit our or your experience to referencing the past. We intend to share new ideas with those who seek new listening experiences which offer the opportunity to exist in the present and to contemplate life in new ways through music. — Joe Morris, August 23, 2016
