Voice Choices

Trio M


Those smitten with the blend of in and out will revel in this threesome who defines the term “mercurial.” Agility is front and center as pianist Myra Melford, bassist Mark Dresser, and drummer Matt Wilson stretch their tunes—concrete melodies one sec, abstracted elaborations the next—with the kind of all-for-one chemistry that’s necessary to take such maneuvers from ho-hum to holy shit! Subtlety is paramount here, and each participant knows the power of nuance and the rewards of drama. It’s a rather rare local club gig, too.
