Fiona's Comments

You know Easter's a coming when Thumper gets a hit on the bass drum. Synths distract the piano drone with plenty of textural treats. Like a candy hunt for grown-ups.

About the Album

Circles is the sophomore release for North American collective, MEM3. MEM3 features 3 different musicians from 3 different parts of the globe, whose collective vibe and musicianship forms a very distinct and adventurous modern jazz trio. The trio consists of Michael Cabe on piano from Seattle (USA), Mark Lau on bass from Sydney (Australia) and Ernesto Cervini from Toronto (Canada). The album is made up of original compositions from all three musicians as well as one traditional hymn. Included is a piece dedicated to the great jazz pianist, Esbjorn Svensson who’s own trio EST was a great inspiration for these musicians. The group’s sound is influenced by the trio sounds of the great Oscar Peterson, Peter Erskine, the Bad Plus and the aforementioned EST.
