Trio Beyond (Jack DeJohnette, John Scofield, Larry Goldings)

Trio Beyond echoes the instrumental format – organ/guitar/drums – of Lifetime, as Larry Goldings, John Scofield and Jack DeJohnette revisit material once played by Larry Young, John McLaughlin and Tony Williams. Thus “Emergency” and “Spectrum” are drawn from Lifetime’s first disc, while Coltrane’s “Big Nick” and Larry Young’s “Allah Be Praised” were part of the repertoire on the follow-up “Turn It Over”. However, in rounding out this portrait, DeJohnette, Scofield and Goldings also retrace the path of Tony Williams, going back to his early days with Miles Davis. “Seven Steps To Heaven” was one of the first pieces that the then 17-year-old Williams played with the great trumpeter, recording it on the album of the same name in 1963 and, soon afterwards, on several live discs (“Miles In St Louis”, “Four and More”). The standard “I Fall In Love Too Easily” was also part of Miles’s book in the early 1960s, recorded on the “Seven Steps” album and, again, two years later on the “Plugged Nickel” sessions. “Pee Wee” is a piece Williams wrote for the Davis group, and recorded on “Sorcerer” in 1967 in the classic 60s Davis group with Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and Ron Carter.
