This aptly titles trio performance aligns alto saxman Tabnik with bassist Cameron Brown and drummer Carol Tristano, all committed to music shaped by the moment's inspiration. Still, they can pursue uncharted paths with confidence and music vocabulary rooted in past moments of the jazz experience. Thematically, the lines created by Tabnik are free of conventional melodic movement but they are not without structure and purpose. Both Brown and Tristano provide a steady pulse to nourish Tabnik's freer excursions and Brown goes beyond his support role to bring form and color to each piece. Except for one track which flashes back to Lester Young's fluid solo sound on Cahn/Chaplin's Shoe Shine Boy, all this music develops collectively on Tabnik originals.
Leitmotiv is a Frédéric Truong musical project that plays principally melanchonic instrumental pieces, full of sadness and pain, but opened to the light at the same time. The music of Leitmotiv is inspired by various themes, as the notes of "Suspended Moment" retrospective suggest. Through the past full-length albums in fact it’s possible see inspiration by cinema, emotions, feelings, war and racism refuse. The last and wonderful surprise from this artist comes from the birth of her daughter Sophie that became his muse. The most of Leitmotiv works were released by own label, Karismatik, that now is dead. During 2002, Frédéric Truong finally decided to close Leitmotiv project. So after the last album Parc Sainte-Marie, he began to release records under its own name.
