Embarking on his fourth project for Criss Cross, guitarist Adam Rogers departs from the quartet and quintet formats he explored on prior outings. This time his preference is a pared-down trio session. The virtuosic bass playing of Scott Colley, who has appeared on every Rogers led session to date, provides aesthetic continuity. On drums is the sought-after Bill Stewart, an incisive and unpredictable musician who has graced Criss Cross sessions by Peter Bernstein, Jesse Van Ruller and Jonathan Kreisberg. Included are such standards as "Without a Song," "I Loves You, Porgy," "Night and Day" and "Young and Foolish." Rogers preserves the integrity of these timeless melodies even as he mines them for new harmonic and formal insights. Rogers also premieres four original compositions.
