…Inviting the multifaceted George Lewis to collaborate with them allows the trio to expand their perspective without modifying or compromising it. His expansive résumé is, or should be, well-known, documenting his creativity in jazz, Free Jazz, non-idiomatic improvisation, and electronic programming and composing. In this situation, his subtle electronics color the music as an organic entity; it is often difficult to isolate the electronic timbres from the extended string techniques. His trombone, however, is an intensifying agent in the mix, provocatively distorting the misconception of the trio as limited to “improvisatory chamber music.…”
