"THREE" documents a unique live show by the Thollem McDonas/Valerio Cosi/Enzo Franchini trio, made in Rimini (Italy, late 2006). When Valerio and Enzo met Thollem, they decided to tour together and gather their forces delving deep into the realm of free improvised music. Thollem's comprovisational approach met Valerio & Enzo's improvisational skills as an acoustic sax/drums duo, the live results gave birth to an absolutely spontaneous, fierce and romantic 1 hour voyage. Finally coming out of the closet after 10 years and available for the public consumption, "Three" is a free jazz recording that highlights the trio's improvisational abilities with a classical, thoughtful and unexpectedly romantic touch.
