Neume (Canterbury/Ziefel/Hoskin)

This trio featuring Jesse Canterbury (clarinet, bass clarinet) Jenny Ziefel (clarinet, bass clarinet) and Paul Hoskin (contrabass clarinet) works with spontaneous composition in utterly refreshing ways. The range of sound defies expectation. Movements of passages are completely non-predictable. Conventional trio practice is ignored and/or dismantled. Foreground/background is of more interest than solo with accompaniment standards. All may bring home beauty and fascination...if nothing else.
