Each of the trio studied with guitarist/composer Joe Morris, who appropriately contributes the liners to this release. Slovenian drummer Dre Hocevar may have the most visibility due to his series of discs on the Clean Feed imprint, the third of which Transcendental Within the Sphere of Indivisible Remainder (2017) also features Clarke and the bassist from this date, Henry Fraser. While initial impressions might imply that Clarke operates in a similarly abstract sphere, the bulk of this album evokes a more straightforward piano tradition. At least until you listen closely. Then it becomes apparent that while the standard syntax is acknowledged in the constantly recalibrated relationships between the three instruments, they purposefully avoid overt melody or sustained rhythm.
When it happens, the best of this astonishing album finally erupts: the sense that there are narratives being told, with personas interacting with each other and with its landscapes giving an impression of completeness.
Zack Clarke : piano, electronics Henry Fraser : double bass Dré Hočevar : drums. This is a free trio with a decided difference. Henry Fraser is the double bassist, Dre Hocevar the drummer, and they both contribute much to the outcome.
