Album Description

The Inventions Trio is a group comprised of an unusual instrumentation – trumpet (and flugel), piano, and cello. Bill Mays and I are joined by the talented cellist, Alisa Horn. I have known Alisa since she was a young child, and it was exciting for me to introduce Alisa to Bill, to encourage their musical relationship, and then observe her joining us as a performing and touring ensemble. The music Bill has written and arranged for this CD, "Fantasy," is built upon lovely classical melodies that provide beautiful thematic material for the ensemble and wonderful settings for our improvisations. Bill’s original composition, "Fantasy for Piano, Trumpet, and Cello" is a great example of modern writing, combining classical composition and jazz exploration. The Inventions Trio truly embodies the melding of these two genrés. We are very excited about this, our first CD, and the touring that will follow. I hope you will join us on our journey.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
