Historically, there have been many variations on the line-up of a jazz trio. But as the piano-led model becomes somewhat ubiquitous any alternatives are more than welcome. Herman/Ceccaldi/Darrifourcq is a breath of fresh air in small group improvisation, as the uncommon textural palette created by saxophone, cello, drums and electronics reveals the maximum possibilities of what some might call a minimal set up.
In/Casino/Out is the second full-length album by American post-hardcore band At the Drive-In, released on August 18, 1998 through Fearless Records. It was recorded as a live studio album, with the intention of better capturing the energy and sound of their live shows. The album marks a clear middle ground between the dirty, lo-fi sound of their first album, Acrobatic Tenement, and the sleeker, more produced sound heard on Relationship of Command. In 2016, Rolling Stone placed the album at #20 in their "40 Greatest Emo Albums Of All Time" list.
Excellent addition to any prog rock music collection
ADM's third solo album, Casino, is the last I'll consider as excellent, although it is clear his future albums will not lack good moments. Indeed, Casino even won some kind of music awards in some mag, In this album, he's backed by his former bandleader Barry Miles (ADM had played with them before getting a call from Chick Corea to join up RTF), percussion greats Mingo Lewis and Steve Gadd. One of the new twist is that the foursome form a real band with Mingo Lewis even allowed a song.
