About the album

Artist(s)

Marc Johnson

Marc Johnson (1953) toured with Woody Herman in the late 1970s. One year later he was hired by Bill Evans in 1978, and remained his main bass player until Evans died in 1980. In 1985 Johnson recorded the first record under his own name for ECM, “Bass Desires”, with Bill Frisell and John Scofield on guitar, and Peter Erskine on drums, followed by “Second Sight” in 1987. “The Sound Of Summer Running”, featuring Bill Frisell, Joey Baron, and Pat Metheny, was released in 1998. Marc played many sessions with John Abercrombie, Peter Erskine, Marcs wife Eliane Elias and Enrico Pieranunzi. His latest (2005) recording for ECM, “Shades of Jade”, features Joe Lovano on saxophone.

Peter Erskine

A piano trio led by a drummer was an unusual proposal and one that initially surprised listeners who had followed Erskine through louder adventures with Weather Report and the Stan Kenton Big Band. But this alliance with pianist John Taylor, the trio’s primary composer, and bassist Palle Danielsson soon found its own following. Down Beat described the music as “Zen-like” implying that much of its power resided in the not-played. “If such a thing as virtuosic understatement is possible, Peter Erskine's band makes it real,” the Ottawa Citizen agreed.
