Victor Noriega & Gust Burns - 2 Trios Project
...
Pianists Victor Noriega and Gust Burns first crossed paths at the Port Townsend jazz camp in 1996 when they were both 17 years old. Now, 17 years later, they will celebrate the release of their joint recording 2 Trios at the Cellar in Vancouver, BC, on Sunday, March 3, and the Chapel Performance Space in Seattle on Tuesday, March 6.
The idea behind 2 Trios comes from the interplay between two different piano trios with the same bassist and percussionist. In 2010, Noriega and Burns selected bassist Jeff Johnson and percussionist Greg Campbell to join them in back-to-back sets at Gallery 1412 (formerly Polestar).
...
After two successful shows at Gallery 1412, Noriega submitted a recording to the 2011 Jack Straw Artist Support Program. The award was used to create this 2 Trios recording.
Rather than play complete sets, Noriega and Burns swapped the piano seat during the recording session each time they had played two pieces.
...
Noriega and Burns talked about the project at the Jack Straw Productions and Washington Composer Forum Composer Spotlight, February 13. "We were truly in the moment," Noriega said. "We had to draw on what was happening."
Burns said, "It's easy to play poorly without rehearsal. But this turned out well."
Noriega felt liberated by the approach. "There was no preparation, so there was nothing to mess up." Ten tracks of the sixteen recorded are included on the CD. All are first takes.
Noriega manipulates fragments of standard songs in new ways.

Victor Noriega (piano)
An award-winning pianist, composer and arranger, Victor Noriega is an original voice in jazz. Noriega's playing has been described as having "the sensitivity of Bill Evans, the propulsion of Horace Silver and the experimentation of Thelonious Monk," while his compositions have been characterized as "layered, complex, interesting and rhythmic," "introspective at times, energetic and boundary-stretching at others… seamlessly blend[ing] jazz and modern classical in?uences. Noriega's three albums of original compositions and arrangements - Stone's Throw (2004), Alay (2006), and Fenceless (2008) - each recorded with his trio, earned critical acclaim, and Noriega was honored with three Golden Ear awards (2005 Emerging Artist of the Year, 2006 Instrumentalist of the Year, and 2006 Album of the Year for Alay) by Earshot Jazz, recognizing the best of the Pacific Northwest jazz scene.
