Bebop Spoken There

Dave Puddy: "Eventually we paid our entrance money [to Eel Pie Island] and fought our way to one of the many bars where we could buy our Newcastle Brown and retire to the back of the heaving dancefloor. There must have been lights somewhere, but my memory remains of being in some dark cavernous wonderland." - (Just Jazz July 2020)

Dave Rempis:Ten years from now, I can see musicians streaming concerts in real time and charging a minimal amount for people to watch.” - (DownBeat September 2013)

New album: 3'Ain - 3'Ain

The press release says it all ... Follow the try/buy link at the foot of the post - you may be pleasantly surprised! - Lance.
----- 
3'Ain is a brand new trio, in which Yamen Martini (trumpet) Otto Kint (upright bass) and Piet Maris (accordion) join forces
In 2015 Yamen moved from Syria to Belgium, where he met Piet: the two started working together on music for a theatre play in 2016.
Lateron, Piet invited Yamen to play and record as a guest musician with Jaune Toujours, as you can hear on their most recent album Europeana (2018). Summer of 2019, they asked Otto to join in on their musical exchange, starting up a new trio.

Their name is based on ﻉ‎, which is the eighteenth letter of the Arabic alphabet, one of the most difficult vowels to pronounce for western people. As it is often indicated in Arabic chat - and SMS -conversation as 3, and in transliteration as 'ain, 3'Ain seemed an appropriate name for a trio playing contemporary jazz and world with oriental influences.
The threesome like to name their pieces after things they see around them while creating. Since they often work in Ostend, where Yamen lives, what they mostly see is boats arriving from all over the world. BZ-189 was one of those boats.

Try/buy.
Debut EP to be released in UK on June 26
