Description

This much-anticipated recording debut of this new jazz supergroup (comprised of reedman David Murray, pianist Geri Allen and drummer Terri Lyne Carrington) features (and is named after) 'Perfection', a never before recorded composition by Ornette Coleman, who passed away just days before the recording.

The artists dedicated songs on the album to Coleman and to other jazz heroes who have recently died: Marcus Belgrave, Charlie Haden and Father Peter O'Brien, the confidante/manager of Mary Lou Williams. Carrington also dedicated one of her compositions to Wayne Shorter, one of the greatest living jazz masters, with whom Carrington toured for almost a decade from 1987.

Each of the Power Trio leaders has their own loyal following and a sterling reputation for prolific creativity and innovation. Each has achieved considerable artistic heights and is a renowned educator. This debut signals a new chapter in the long history of successful collaborations between Allen and Carrington and is the first collaboration that adds the unique sound of Murray.

A collection of deeply poetic and expansive 21st century jazz, the recording showcases original compositions by each artist and arrangements created specifically for this unusual configuration of saxophone, piano and drums.
