Extended, “Extended” (Independent)


Bassist Booth offers a quieter mood and slower tempo on “Before Grey” while Webb’s drums maintain a tap-dancing rhythmic undercurrent. Rossignoli’s classic training is in evidence at the opening of another, somewhat more meditative number, Webb’s “What If.” A taste of the pianist’s Honduran homeland briefly enters on “Neck and Neck.”

These three musicians sound as if they were destined to play with each other. Their interactions, improvisations and the seamless way their compositions flow from cut to cut feel instinctive. Extended exemplifies creativity.
