Product details

Roil is a collaboration among pianist Chris Abrahams (The Necks), bassist Mike Majkowski (Splinter Orchestra), and drummer James Waples (Three Omegas). Formed in 2007, the Sydney--based trio has been developing its own approach to jazz improvisation. Meaning is its first release and was recorded in one uninterrupted session on 2 April 2008. There is a controlled elegance to Roil's music -- not that this precludes the energetic. The music has an eddying quality that moves between group utterance and multi--stranded counterpoint, a weaving of textures that coagulate to form unified phrases before dispersing once more into the churning invention.

Duration: 39 min.
