Catalog Number: CIMP Records 370
Kenbillou Kenbillou ESATrio (Primary), Bill Gagliardi (Saxophone), Ken Filiano (Bass), Lou Grassi (Drums)The ESATrio is Bill Gagliardi’s latest venture into his wonderful world of improvisation. And who better to team up with than his old partner, Lou Grassi, and the phenomenal bassist, Ken Filiano. With these three musical minds at play you can expect grit and wit as they set up, dig in, and mine. Music of substance—pure and hip.

Catalog Number: CIMP Records 369
Conspiracy A Go GoConspiracy A Go GoDavid Haney (Piano), Dominic Duval (Bass), Andrew Cyrille (Drums)This isn’t the first time David Haney and Andrew Cyrille have worked together, but these two sessions are the first time they have recorded together. With David, one can always expect the unexpected, whether it be Free Jazz, excursions, or an exploration of a traditional Blues. With Andrew one has come to expect simply the best in musical inventiveness. CIMP 367 is a duo; the addition of the substantial presence of bassist Dominic Duval changes the whole dynamic (as it should) on CIMP 369. To further emphasize the differences, five of the compositions appear on both the duo and the trio sessions. Hear and analyze this bracing and embracing music.

Catalog Number: CIMP Records 368
The Crookedest Straight Line Vol. 2The Crookedest Straight Line Vol. 2Chris Kelsey (Soprano Saxophone), John Carlson (Trumpet), Francois Grillot (Bass), Jay Rosen (Drums)Chris Kelsey is a distinct soprano saxist, an intense player, and very discriminate in his artistic expositions. He rarely is heard with another horn player but here Chris invites John Carlson to join his longstanding trio. Together they ponder the unknown with deliberateness and purpose. Just what you have come to expect from all of Mr. Kelsey’s releases and as good an introduction as any.

The Art of the Trio The Art of the Trio Ernie Krivda (Tenor Saxophone), Peter Dominquez (Bass), Ron Godale (Drums)This is only the second time Ernie Krivda has recorded in trio, the first occurring in 1995. This is pure Ernie, no-holds barred. And he’s accompanied by a fleet rhythm section that negotiates Ernie’s energy and twists with the same accuracy and energy one would expect from his long-time compatriots. Dynamic playing, memorable compositions.
