The great saxophonist Joe Lovano has appeared on a number of ECM recordings over the last four decades, including much-loved albums with Paul Motian, Steve Kuhn and John Abercrombie. Trio Tapestry is his first as a leader for the label, introducing a wonderful new group and music of flowing lyricism, delicate texture, and inspired interplay. Lovano and pianist Marilyn Crispell are in accord at an advanced level inside its structures."Marilyn has such a beautiful sound and touch and vocabulary," Joe enthuses. Drummer Carmen Castaldi, a Lovano associate of long-standing, also responds to the trio environment with sensitivity, subtly embellishing and detailing the pieces. Lovano: We play together like an orchestra, creating an amazing tapestry. I brought in the material, but there's an equal weight of contribution, creating music within the music, and harmonizing it in a really special way. Trio Tapestry was recorded at New York's Sear Sound studio in March 2018, and produced by Manfred Eicher.
