From its inception in 2001, Scenes has added a distinctive voice to the classic guitar trio lexicon through the creative group aesthetic applied by guitarist John Stowell, bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer John Bishop. For their latest release, the trio presents a set of compelling originals as they also explore varying sonic textures with Stowell's use of nylon string guitar, and even the fretless-guitar on the closing track. Johnson introduces his singular approach to the electric bass on several cuts as an alternative to the acoustic bass. With a stirring intent, the harmonic and rhythmically unfettered world of "Rinnova" unfolds to each listener at a unique pace, always challenging, and always delighting. "...at times reminscent of guitarist John Abercrombie's trio, but more in its aesthetic than any direct stylistic reference." -All About Jazz
