“The Gowanus Session”, a new trio recording by Thollem
McDonas (piano), William Parker (acoustic bass), Nels Cline (electric guitar), that explores the density and subtlety of
tones with reverberating layers of sounds. Thollem McDonas approaches the piano brilliantly, leading the listener to image
abstract and beautiful worlds within themselves. William Parker, with his mastery of the acoustic bass, brings warmth
to the recording that is complex, soaring and joyful. Nels Cline’s innovative and shape shifting guitar runs the
range of identifiable guitar to micro-tonal alien transmissions that act as a solid sound foundation. A pinnacle recording from
three master improvisers.
