THE LOST TRIO: Mysterious Toboggan
Evander, 2011

MODERN JAZZ – The fifth CD by this long-running Bay Area group walks a wobbly line at the nearer edge of avant-jazz, maintaining an adventurous but friendly spirit and the untethered rhythmic approach we’ve come to expect from them. Enjoyable sax/bass/drum excursions.

Phillip Greenlief : tenor sax
Dan Seamans : bass
Tom Hassett: drums

Try any track. Fo’s Picks: 2, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9

1. 4:24 – a loose, rather sloppy but good-natured galumphing groove
2. 4:22 – Thelonious Monk: upbeat walk, sax/drums trade off over steady bass
3. 3:35 – melody tussles with swirling trio improv, keeps trying to spin off axis
4. 3:18 – nice mopey sound here: bass is up front, cool drum work behind
5. 5:04 – catchy PJ Harvey: a too-cool, almost sneering sound, great solos
6. 6:50 – slow lyrical trudge: sax & bass ruminations on an old-world melody
7. 3:17 – striding with a touch of tango, elbows its way forward
8. 8:02 – Steve Lacy tune: nice solo bass intro, lumpy trio hops, pops & flops
9. 11:06 – jazz standard, played straight: slow and easy… long, but very nice
