David Schnug Trio

by David Schnug



This trio record is one of three in a series curated by myself and released by 577 Records. The other two releases are by Aella and Alan Bjorklund’s Amygdala.
This is my first release as a leader and the compositions on it were created between 2005 and 2010. Each track on this record was created with a different compositional concept in mind, as well as a different approach to the act of improvisation. As I listen back to these tracks, I can hear not only the musical ideas that I was interested in, but the things I was reading, the people I was meeting, and the type I person I was while writing them. Each record in this series is a testament to individual personality - while we may find ourselves in the same genre, each recording is in its own musical universe. -David Schnug
