Gordon Beeferman Trio Out in Here

Pianist/composer Gordon Beeferman turns the traditional piano trio inside out with these nine completely improvised pieces. "Out in Here" documents a subversive and elegant mind-meld with two exceptionally creative collaborators, bassist James Ilgenfritz and drummer/percussionist Michael Evans. This entirely acoustic record conjures up electronica, noise, free jazz, and new-complexity, in a sublimely creative fashion. Disquieting, occasionally absurdist, and beautiful, this is music for our surreal age of unpredictability and unrest.

Beeferman's previous recordings include "Music for an Imaginary Band," the 2009 debut of his avant-jazz septet; "Rogue States" and "Bodies of Water", with percussionist Jeff Arnal, and "Rara Avis" with Arnal and saxophonist Seth Misterka; and recordings of his chamber music compositions by the American Brass Quintet and Berlin-based Quartet New Generation recorder collective.
