Trigger “All These Things” CD




Trigger is Paul Hoskin, Leslie Ross and Fred Lonberg-Jones, an improvising trio from New York with a penchant for lower register instruments – among them cello, contrabass, bass-clarinet, and bassoon. This collection of improvisations is nonsensical, fun, dark, funky, chaotic and brooding. The players lean heavily on extended instrumental technique and noise punctuated with sharp musical silliness and fleeting moments of stillness. They demonstrate a keen sense of listening, responding quickly to each other’s musical ideas and are clearly enjoying themselves.
