The world of sound created by contemporary jazz trio Auziņš / Čudars / Arutyunyan can be characterised by fearlessness and the never-ending search for the boundaries of new sounds. In their music, an elegant grasp of the jazz canon meets with the mood dictated by the moment. A brilliant contemporary jazz recording.

This album was recorded live direct to analog tape using a Studer A 80 1/4” two-track tape recorder without any editing or overdubbing.
