INTRO: Larry Goldings - organ / Peter Bernstein - guitar / Bill Stewart - drums"Two of the best organ trios of the last decade have featured the same three players. Technically speaking, it's just one group, variously billed as the Larry Goldings Trio (on several albums) or the Peter Bernstein Trio (on a recent DVD). Consisting of Mr. Goldings on organ, Mr. Bernstein on guitar and Bill Stewart on drums, it fulfills all of the standard criteria capably and rewardingly, without trying to reinvent the wheel." by Nate Chinen - New York Times "Here's an authentic organ trio with all the size and scope of Mount Everest, and twice the cool. Sure, there are Hammond B-3 players with more extravagant floor routines and bluster, but if they gave out medals for swing, subtlety, suppleness, sound, and soul, then Larry Goldings would wear Olympic gold. Long-time collaborators Bill Stewart on drums and Peter Bernstein on guitar round out a trinity of improvisers that operate with the free-flowing give and take, structured architecture, shifting tempo, and varied dynamics of a good basketball team." by Chip Stern - AS ONE.

INFO:Larry Goldings, Peter Bernstein, and Bill Stewart—three musicians with great ears; organ, guitar, and drums—a lineup rich in tradition—makes for passionate, grooving, highly sophisticated music. And the music is as cryptic as the CD’s title: Ramshackle Serenade. This is music you can fall right into. It catches you in its warm sound bed. And as you lie there you can enjoy the many fine details: particulars that are the results of some 25 years of collaboration between these three musicians — musicians who happen to be among the best on their respective instruments. Hammond organist (and pianist) Larry Goldings, guitarist Peter Berstein, and drum- mer Bill Stewart are an extraordinary team. Here you have everything that the traditional “organ trio” (organ, guitar, and drums) has to offer—exciting grooves, rich, tasty, sump- tuous sounds. But the music on this PIROUET CD also has an unusual, subtly intoned intimacy. With their exploitation of the music’s dynamic possibilities, the passion and joy of this amazingly versatile instrumental lineup is there for all to hear. At the same time there is a depth in Ramshackle Serenade that transforms the joy of playing into an excla- mation of life. “Ramshackle”— tumbledown, derelict, dilapidated. “Ram- shackle” was the word Mark Twain used to describe the broken-down shack on the bank of the Mississippi in which the boy who was the model for Huckleberry Finn lived. Larry Goldings, who composed the title piece, says, “As I was looking for a title for the song, I thought about Mark Twain — I don’t know exactly why. Maybe I felt there was a bit of Americana in the piece. As I was busy with Twain, I came across the word ‘ramshackle’, which seemed to fit to the spirit of the piece. There is this melodic counter- movement that appears to continually peel away, and the piece has something fragile about it. But it is also lyrical, so it seems totally appropriate to contrast it with a word like ‘serenade’... View Full Article:
