Planktronic Finales – Stephan Crump, Ingrid Laubrock, Cory Smythe

Stephan Crump (bass), Ingrid Laubrock (saxophone) and Cory Smythe (piano) – this trio consists of three innovative improvisers and jazz musicians of the younger Brooklyn scene. An intense and extremely relaxed encounter in the recording studio led to an outstanding CD on Intakt.

Christoph Wagner writes in the liner notes: “Over long periods, the music seemed to play itself. Long notes and exciting arcs set the tone for a sound which can appear introvert, sometimes almost meditative. Variation and contrast are provided by more expressive outbursts from the saxophone, interspersed with rippling piano cascades or hammered, staccato bursts of Morse code. Deep down the powerful bass thunders on. Fascinating sensory illusions emerge. When listening back to the recordings, at times even the musicians were no longer sure if what they were hearing came from sax or from bowed bass.”
