Desertion Trio: February 2, 2018 Trans-Pecos

Desertion Trio joined us at newly-licensed Trans-Pecos this past Friday to celebrate the release of their new album, Midtown Tilt, having done the same in their hometown of Philadelphia the night before. The album picks up in many ways where their excellent 2016 effort, Desertion, left off, oscillating between focused riffage and freeform jazz improv. This set showed off not only bandleader Nick Millevoi’s ample guitar skills, but gave broad berth to guest keyboardist Jamie Saft, who appears on both of the band’s albums, adding tremendous depth in the process. Of course, the focus of this one-hour sessions was on Midtown Tilt, including an outstanding rendition of “Jai Alai Noon” that gave Saft ample room to run., while set closer “Numbers Maker” coalesced into an extended freakout before tapering off into its final minutes. For those of us who’d seen the band before, there was much to love about this version of “Desertion and Arsonist’s Match,” which departed from earlier, Saft-less renditions we’ve featured but kept the song’s essential nature as a palette for extended interaction. As we’ve pointed out before, all of these fine musicians contribute to the music world in so many ways, so it is a special pleasure to see them come together here in New York. Check out Midtown Tilt, which is available directly from the band now.

I recorded this set with Schoeps MK22 microphones at the stage lip, together with a soundboard feed. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
