The Ben Monder Trio

by

The eerie clouds of fuzz that the guitarist gets from his instrument explain his textural skills, and the deep agility of his note-driven lines often scrambles the orthodoxy that roots them. Long story short: Monder’s got a singular style, and when he connects with bassist John Hebert and drummer Tom Rainey—who boast a mischievous chemistry, if a recent Barbès collabo is any indication – grace and clatter will do some heavy petting.
