On April 19th, 1975, at Northern Illinois University, three musicians met in a milestone event from which emerged a unique, improvised trio with two pianos and South Indian percussion. Fortunately, it was recorded and excerpts released on a long out of print LP. This CD recaptures the essense of the entire evening of musical discovery with previously unreleased music recovered from digitally reprocessed tapes recently discovered in diverse states of preservation.
Suitable for Framing is a sublime excursion into third stream rhythms. The music is filled with changing chords and various world themed patterns. David Rosenboom's playing is fun yet complexed, reminiscent to David Tudor meets Herbie Hancock. His compositions are well structured allowing Floyd and Sankaran to blend in and out of the tunes seamlessly. This trio develops slowly over 60 plus minutes into a fresh, invigorating session that is commanding of your attention.
Recorded April 19, 1975 at Northern Illinois University in DeKalb, Illinois.
