Mark Wade Trio – Event HorizonFebruary 20, 2015 / No Comments / Tags: Event Horizon, Mark Wade, Scott Neumann, thejazzpage.com, Tim Harrison
Bassist Mark Wade demonstrates his strengths as musician, bandleader, arranger and composer on his debut recording. Event Horizon also showcases Wade’s affinity for the piano trio. The other members of his trio are pianist Tim Harrison and Scott Neumann on drums. The three connect musically with great proficiency and artistry at their respective crafts. Wade composed all but one track on the recording and his gifts as a writer really shine through. Each song is a musically engaging work of exposition that allows for great interplay, which pulls the listener into the conversation. This effort is an outstanding debut that is not to be missed.
