Now Playing On Jazz from Gallery 41 - Jason Kao Hwang - Human Rites Trio




Now on Jazz from Gallery 41

Jason Kao Hwang
HUMAN RITES TRIO

Jason Kao Hwang - Composer, Violin, Viola
Andrew Drury - Drums
Ken Filiano - string bass

The following two paragraphs are from notes written by:

Scott Currie - Associate Professor: Creative Studies & Media / Ethnomusicology - College of Minnesota - College of Liberal Arts


Jason Hwang and his longtime bandmates Ken Filiano (bass) and Andrew Drury (drums) could only have made this recording now, after having persevered – individually and collectively – through life’s trials and errors to get to this point of effortless musical mastery, where they can converse freely and eloquently in a language created together over years of collaboration. Certainly, the intimate experience of engaging with this music as a trio for at least a year, testing it in concert after concert, making revisions and discoveries all along the way, has engendered a truly remarkable depth of shared feeling and common understanding among them.
...
Over the fifteen years since they recorded their debut together, Hwang’s artistic synergy with Filiano and Drury has gained such depth and profundity with each successive project – from his Edge quartet through his Spontaneous River string orchestra, his Burning Bridge octet, and his Sing House quintet – that it seems a single gesture can now send all three into a sublime state of sympathetic resonance. As we marvel at the collaborative interplay of their individual voices united here once again in common purpose, we can only look forward to many further shared journeys of musical discovery still ahead.
