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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
