”Seager has distilled his lyrical approach into perfectly balanced and unfailingly beautiful music full of quiet subtleties.” Boston Phoenix

Bert Seager leads a seasoned trio through a collection of highly personalized standards and finely etched originals. Although rhythm-mates Messrs. Barshay and Roeder are short on years they are long on talent and they have had the good fortune to have played with Seager for an extended period. The ensemble spirit that has evolved from that experience shows up well in this recording. Bert’s playing, while generally eschewing technical fireworks, is striking in its thoughtfulness and logic and the organic lines seem to naturally grow from the trio’s interactive frisson. Unafraid to use space, he achieves tension and interest through sophisticated melodic design and piquant harmonic thinking.
