A more energetic and focused effort when compared with 2016’s ‘Eleven Dialogues’, this new album from Up Jumped Three represents a more focused, streamlined, and adventurous sound than had previously been captured on record from the band. All three members of the group are accomplished composers in their own rights and bring varying influences to the group’s sound. Represented here are free jazz explorations (‘Prologue’, ‘Epilogue’, and ‘Forest of Thieves’), classical/chamber music sensibilities (‘Coming of Autumn’), a healthy taste of the blues (‘Jury Duty Blues’ and ‘Porch Blues’), and propulsive rock & funk influences (‘Asphalt Through Leaves’ and ‘New Digs’, respectively). There are no technical showoffs or chops-fest jaunts here. The focus is on space, texture, lyricism, richness of tone, and rhythmic authority. The recording is all original music, composed throughout various sessions in 2016. The CD was recorded at Friendly Hollow Studios in West Asheville, and was mixed and mastered at Transference Studios in Weaverville, NC by Bryan White. The physical CD version features beautiful photography by Frank Southecorvo, and graphic design by Bryan White. credits released June 28, 2017 all songs copyright (C) & (P) 2017 by bryan white, frank southecorvo, and tim winter recorded/engineered by up jumped three at friendly hollow studios - asheville, nc mixed and mastered by bryan white at transference studios - weaverville, nc
