Tres Hongos will be playing Tuesday evening in Lexington, KY on 7/17/12.
Tres Hongos is a trio is comprised of Jacob Wick (trumpet), Marc Riordan (piano), and Frank Rosaly (drums), who has made improvised music their primary focus. Their January 2012 release Where My Dreams Go To Die is a splendid example of how free jazz can involve the careful examinations of ideas, and manifest in bursts of thoughtful phrases. Too often, it seems, the prevalent image of free jazz is a cacophony of runaway notes and the endtimes of silence. Tres Hongos appears more than happy to invite silence up to the bandstand and in front of the mic.
Here’s a track from the album…

It’s right around the corner from the old High On Rose tavern, which I mention by way of helping with directions, but also so I can name-drop that my father-in-law was one of the guys who owned it back in the day.

My apologies for the late notice of the show. It’s been a busy summer of personal activities, which has often taken me away from my computer. You should expect things to be a bit more active now on Notes From The Holler.
