Fans of eclectic, experimental music should take note!
Guitarist Gene Pritsker, 7-string bass guitar player Dan Cooper and drummer Gernot Bernroider make up the Trio Amalgamate. On this eponymous album they play original, mostly instrumental compositions.
My chemistry books define 'amalgam'as a substance formed by the reaction of mercury with another metal. The liner notes of "Trio Amalgamate" explain 'amagamate' as a verb: 'combine or unite to form one organisation of structure'.
I like this definition. And I also like the music that it produces.
The "Trio Amalgamate" album offers a fine selection of compositions. Mixtures of, or equilibria between, jazz, free improvisation and contemporary classical music.
