Editorial Reviews

In the Jeff Ballard Trio, wach musician comes from a completely different place: Lionel is from Benin, Miguel from Puerto Rico and Jeff from North America. The band and music come together in the love, respect, and open-mindedness they have for all genres of music across the globe and from all epochs. There are no borders to dictate their sound except their own desires and taste. Each musician brings his own cultural roots to their music, whether it be from the American song book or an Iranian folk melody. Their sound is defined and proudly flavored with the distinction imparted by each of their countries heritage. It is contemporary and relevant within the current times. The repertoire they play includes Thelonius Monk, Iranian folk melodies, Bartok, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin and improvised melodies from bird calls. They cover songs from pop artists such as Queens Of The Stone Age and Stevie Wonder, as well as playing their own compositions. The music is full of complex rhythms, exotic harmonies and soulful melodies. It is rhythmically very precise whilst playing openly and freely, deliberately pushing and breaking down any limits that harmony and rhythm might present resulting in dynamic tensions and suspense. Time's Tales is the trio's first CD. The overall idea of the recording was to make the sound reflect the character of the band as closely as possible. Everything was recorded with all musicians playing in the same room together and was recorded to 2 inch analogue tape, capturing the organic nature of the group's sound and exciting musical interaction between the players. The repertoire on Time's Tales is as varied and adventurous as the trio's live performances are. The CD opens with Lionel's Virgin Forest which, with the yells and a laugh at the beginning of the track, exhibits the enthusiasm there is in this ensemble. The song is a funky African groove in 9/4. The second piece is a transcription of a Western Wren bird call
