Feeling a bit camera shy


The Bob Ravenscroft Trio

The Bob Ravenscroft Trio anchors the new Ravenswave® label, which has emerged as a special, state-of-the-art “audiophile jazz” music company dedicated to capturing the sound of jazz as “lush” and “intimate” as today’s rapidly-advancing recording techniques will allow.

Ravenswave’s first release, The Bob Ravenscroft Trio at Taliesin West, was a labor of love from many standpoints. This intimate evening in the Music Pavilion at Frank Lloyd Wright’s famed western enclave, Taliesin West, was recorded in Dolby 5.1 surround sound. Jazz fans with DVD players dig the superb audio and video qualities, and the concert really "comes alive" in the most sophisticated home theaters. Ken Hughes of Keyboard Magazine called it “…the Courvoisier of jazz DVDs.” (The album is also available on compact disc.)

Like its recordings, the group’s live performances pay homage to the Bob Ravenscroft Trio’s contemporary musical roots, which just happen to read like the history of jazz itself. The threesome can deliver inspired renderings of challenging works by jazz greats such as Bill Evans, Scott LaFaro, Gary McFarland and Joe Zawinul, or they can take off into sheer exploration on Bob Ravenscroft’s impressionistic originals. Ravenscroft’s style is sensitive and seasoned, but also far-ranging and free. This is a fine player whose time has surely come for exposure on a larger scale.

The Bob Ravenscroft Trio is all about a lifelong dedication to making great jazz music and exploring new ground. Coming soon from the trio is a new studio album called Three Alone, a two-disc hybrid SACD produced at Bernie Becker Recording & Mastering in Burbank, featuring some great new originals. The album can be played in the pristine Super Audio CD (SACD) format, surround stereo, and on conventional CD players as well.
