Best of 2018 #38: Trio Untold – “Trio Untold”


This album is what happens when a melody is perpetually living in only the present moment.  The Trio Untold of guitarist Mike Nord, pianist James Miley, and drummer Ryan Biesack conjure up a melodic presence that throws the door open wide and invites you into that world, and then goes about twisting it about, reshaping the melody’s form and distilling its substance down to its barest elements… all before bringing it back to a greater, but different fullness.  And as it happens, the music is moody and alive and in possession of a strangely captivating beauty.

Released on PJCE Records.

I wrote about the album for The Bandcamp Daily.
