Crispell  /  Helias  /  Checora

Crispell / Helias / Checora


The trio of Marilyn Crispell, Mark Helias and Garry Checora is a special collective project configured for the festival circuit in Canada in 2013. The music will be a combination of Marilyn’s compositions and free improvisations. The demo recordings provided--duos by Crispell and Checora--are reflective of the music this trio will play: sublime, meditative, intimate and free.


Marilyn Crispell’s music and reputation are well known. She has performed, toured, and recorded with a virtual who’s who of the international contemporary and freejazz music community. Anthony Braxton, Barry Guy, Gary Peacock, Paul Motian, Ray Anderson, Leo Smith, Kenny Wheeler, George Lewis, Roscoe Mitchell, Raymond Strid, Andrew Cyrille, Reggie Workman, Gerry Hemingway, Evan Parker, Joelle Leandre, Henry Grimes and many other collaborators have drawn on Marilyn’s supreme technical prowess and sublime aestheticism.
