Trio Music

Pianist Phillip Strange recently returned from a tour with Murakami Ponta, a famous Japanese studio session drummer, and talented Kansai-bassist Aratama Tetsuro.  The tour began at Nagoya jazz-club Doxy, on to Yokkaichi (Full House), then on to one of the the premier jazz clubs in Kansai (Jazz On Top), and finished in Kyoto (Rag).  All the performances were well attended, and the trio played music by Chick Corea, Miles Davis, Bill Evans, Thelonious Monk, and Charles Mingus.  There were several arrangements in 7/4, including a flamenco-style arrangement of Caravan, and a loose version of It’s Only A Paper Moon played as an encore each evening.  As the tour progressed the musical conversation deepened, generating unrepeatable trio performances.
