c_RL - [excerpt from first piece]

It's not for nothing that this trio of Allison Cameron, Nicole Rampersaud and Germaine Liu has called their album Friends, given the easy interplay that one sees when they perform. But friends don't always have to be face-to-face, chattering away. This set saw the trio spread out in front of the stage in the Tranzac's Main Hall, each on their own little sound-island, seemingly doing their own thing in isolation — and yet the sounds curled into each other with a wonderful sort of effortless friction. The second piece even had one of those completely-unexpected perfect stops, where a sudden ending, the music landing just so, took all three by surprise with simultaneous suddenness. Playing with effortless authority, this unit is in a special zone right now and this set was so quietly persuasive it really seemed to shape the rest of the night's performances.
