“This trio truly sizzles with virtuosity and creativity. Tim, Geoffrey and Joe make an amazing trio.” —Chick Corea
Storms/Nocturnes Trio -][- VIA –Mp3– [Origin Records, 2011]
With VIA, the third album by the chamber jazz trio Storms/Nocturnes, British saxophone legend Tim Garland, world leading vibraphone virtuoso Joe Locke and recent Grammy nominee, pianist Geoffrey Keezer, create a unique three-way dialogue of captivating, immersive music. Bringing their different styles and backgrounds together, they create music which can be spacious or immensely complex, delicate but often approaching orchestral depth, and collectively find their way into a new mood or feel before the listener knows they have left the old one.
Their spontaneous interaction, the dovetailing, the assertion of contrasting yet mutually supportive roles are all taken to a new level on this recording. This enduring international alliance of Jazz giants is celebrating its tenth anniversary with this album and concerts throughout Europe and the U.S.
