This set was the debut of the String Trio of New York, an innovative yet generally accessible unit originally comprised of violinist Billy Bang, guitarist James Emery and bassist John Lindberg. Each of the musicians contributed one lengthy composition apiece (including two with the intriguing titles of "Catharsis in Real Time" and "Subway Ride With Giuseppi Logan"), and the music expertly blends composition with improvisation. This music (free at times but always going in a logical direction) grows in interest with each listen.
