Third Attention

by Peter Fraize Trio

Union Blues 07:33
Mr. Y 09:26
Ms. Combat 07:51


This is a studio recording of my "chordless" trio which for nearly a decade hosted weekly jam sessions in the notable DC venues State Of The Union, One Step Down, Bohemian Caverns and Twins Jazz. The CD features four of my originals including the open-ended take on the blues "Union Blues" and the impressionistic title cut, along with the freewheeling Steve Zerlin-penned "Collector's Item" and an Ellingtonian romp through the Bee Gees favorite "How Deep Is Your Love?" which closes out the album. Originally released in 1998 on Union Records.
