Michael Story trio

So you want more

April 2009

This is my trio's 2nd album, an exploration in collective improvisation with a melodic and rhythmically open focus. Many of tunes lead themselves to be torn apart and put back together in a very organic way, with open improvising throughout the trio.

"...the shared quality is lyricism and deeply satisfying melodic flow. Here surely is an object lesson in how intensity can be focused in inward-looking music of enduring beauty."
- Steve Robertson (PBSfm)

"...like a slow story well told, 'You Broke Me' expresses resignation, then refusal to give in and finally emergence to crystal clarity."

"Brief 'Beach Interlude' is a deliciously angular, percussive trip into inner space. The piano's lyrical beauty shines in 'Song for Rach' and on 'Black Booty' its elegiac mood lifts into swing."
