Intakt CD 138


released January 1, 2008

Barry Guy: Bass
Marilyn Crispell: Piano
Paul Lytton: Drums

After two highly praised trio CDs, Odysse and Ithaca, the composer and bassist Barry Guy presents a new CD with the same trio members, pianist Marilyn Crispell and percussionist Paul Lytton. For his new compositions, Barry Guy was inspired by paintings of Max Ernst, Dorothea Tanning, Wilfredo Lam and Yves Tanguy, which provide the springboard for the compositional strategies that reflect dream scenarios and unusual juxtapositions of material whilst preserving improvising. Barry Guy writes: «A sense of space coupled with high energy drives the vehicle of the imagination to create a suite of pieces that take us on a night journey. Importantly for me is the preservation of the classic piano trio tradition where sonority and interplay reign supreme. On top of this we can research our fantasies concerning the musical trajectories inspired by images conjured up by some very special artists.»
