RELEASED 4 FEBRUARY
VIDEO: Trichotomy — Strom
It takes these young Brisbane lads just under an hour to demonstrate that a great piano trio is not just something from 1950s New York.
From the dinner-party joviality of Strom, to the contemplative ivory tinkling on Lullaby, and the hauntingly spare Brick by Brick – Trichotomy’s fifth album possesses a melodic and rhythmic variation that would’ve been applauded by the likes of Bill Evans and Thelonious Monk in jazz’s golden age.
The sampling of George W Bush on the title track aside, Fact Finding Mission is enjoyably imaginative, managing to convert musical abstraction into emotion with a maturity beyond the years of its creators – who are surely Australia’s finest jazz exports.
