Chris Trinidad’s Common Themes III
Creative improvisation is the order of the day on the final Common Themes album.
The Common Themes series is a collection of music that seeks to show how human relationships and interactions are an essential part of making music. This recording features an established group with a history of interplay: guitarist Jared Burrows, drummer Stan Taylor, and saxophonist Len Aruliah. They took Chris under their wing, giving him an opportunity to shine on this album.
