Ben Monder Trio - Dust (1997)

Just love this record; what a great trio!
Ben Monder (guitar), Jim Black (drums) and Ben Street (bass).
It will certainly appeal to fans of Bill Frisell or John Abercrombie.

Trio records can go one of two ways: they either become a showcase for one particular player's overwhelming talent or a dynamic conversation between three equally talented and thematically in-tune musicians.
"Dust" definitely falls in the latter category.
This isn't Monder's show per se; all three players push and pull the songs in varying directions, following no real leader.
