Fiona's Comments

Reassuring intensity, pleasingly smart blues inflections and a confident pace. A tonic to neutralize senseless times.

About the Album

Virtuoso bassist, composer, leader, innovator, talent scout and storyteller, David Friesen offers another of his many gifts in Triple Exposure through the original visual art that graces the cover. David's subtle art work is at one with the spiritual essence, the relaxed precision, and the masterful dynamics - the fully collaborative musical adventure - of Triple Exposure. From David's opening eight note vamp, pianist Greg Goebel's handsomely selective melodic lines and Charlie Doggett's graceful drumming on "Whetstone," through the other ten original compositions, the trio employs perfect interplay, truly a family unit with all its genial genes and collaborative cells, a closely linked group that thrives on selfless awareness and mutual compatibility totally at home with one another.
