News and Notes
When you come across an instrumental trio fronted by a violinist, you build up some expectations. Bluegrass. Maybe a little Vivaldi. However, when that trio releases their records on Chicago's notorious Touch and Go label, look forward to your expectations being smashed into itty bitty pieces. It's probably best to just put them aside and enjoy the sonic landscape. The album's third track, "Hope," is a gentle and inviting place to start.
