The Exciting Trio
The Exciting Trio (Griffin Rodriguez, b,
elec; Matt Schneider, g, elec; David Pakovic, d,
melodica) is really a fine free Jazz guitar trio
who’ve added a lot of electronics to their sound.
This makes them different, but not too much so.
The electronic sounds on In Chicago There is Willy (482 Music 1023, 51:22) are tasteful and
always background to the group guitar sound.
Matt Schneider’s guitar is clear and melodic and
clever, and he works well in tandem with
Rodriguez’ bass. Pakovic is a light handed drummer,
keeping things moving, and adding his
melodica here and there with a harmonica like
effect. But this expanded trio is not AMM. The
music is free, yet it is always tonal and interesting,
and now and then it even swings.
