Liner Notes by William Parker: “I see three small boats with three musicians crossing this lovely lake of sound they reach the shore and it began to rain sunlight”. If the same piece of music is played multiple times it will take on a new life at each performance. When improvisation is added the music becomes new music that did not exist before. The music I speak about is the music coming from “HEAR in NOW”, the trio consisting of Mazz Swift on violin, Tomeka Reid on cello and Silvia Bolognesi on bass. They begin by telling us stories, these stories have all kinds of twists and turns plots and counterplots. They may go back into history or move forward into the future.
