Gordon Beeferman, on his first full album playing Hammond organ, is joined by two remarkable collaborators, guitarist Anders Nilsson and drummer/percussionist Ches Smith. Beeferman’s set of compositions riff on the classic jazz organ trio through a 21st-century lens. Completed at the Ucross Foundation in Wyoming in the fall of 2016, these intricate and extended pieces traverse unusual moods, forms, rhythms, and sound-worlds, opening up to feature each member of the trio, each unique virtuoso improvisers in their own right. The album is produced by guitarist Chris Cochrane (No Safety, THEM, Collapsible Shoulder).
“Beeferman splatters and smashes his way through a cosmic and complex set of psychedelic jazz and rock fusion-minded freak-outs, invoking Sun Ra and electric Miles.” –Brooklyn Rail
“Intricate interplay revealing impressive themes and variations.” –Jazzweekly.com
