Pianist Izumi Kimura brings together her longtime collaborator and friends Ronan Guilfoyle and Matthew Jacobson for improvising trio.
'Sometimes I like to paint pictures with my fingers. They are abstract shapes and colors. I let my fingers dance on the paper without care. I don't know anything about painting, I just enjoy the feeling. And I simply wanted to play music like that.
I am lucky to have these friends and wonderful musicians who are willing to do this together, sincerely and light-heartedly, bringing their expertise and sensitivities, to have fun and let it unfold'.
