“A” TRIO

Live In Nickelsdorf

(Roaratorio - ROAR32) LP $16.50 (Out-of-stock)

The heavily textural, frequently perplexing, sometimes unsettling music of Mazen Kerbaj (trumpet), Sharif Sehnaoui (acoustic guitar), and Raed Yassin (doublebass) bears little relation to its cousins from similar outer realms of extended technique. Live In Nickeldorf is the sound of a collective ur-mind that favors the long gesture over pointillistic strokes. Using no electronics or overdubs whatsoever, the Beirut-based trio’s capacity for generating aural illusions is astounding; one would be hard-pressed to identify their sources as three acoustic instruments.
