I'd actually heard about cellist Matt Brubeck more in the context of his work teaching at York University than as a performer, so this was the first time I'd ever caught him in action. In this trio, Brubeck could sometimes pull the tone from "jazzy" to "compositional" depending on whether he was plucking or bowing his cello's strings, but there was generally an even-handed exchange with pianist Marilyn Lerner and drummer Nick Fraser. Word is there's a new album coming soon to follow up on their first disc from a few years ago.
