O’s Notes: The Fab Trio is the late violinist Billy Bang, bassist Joe Fonda and Barry Altschul on drums. They compose seven free jazz adventures and add a super arrangement of “Chan Chan”. The interplay is excellent as they explore, provoke and create the History of Jazz in Reverse. The star is Bang who imparts an incredible amount of passion through his instrument. He plays on top of free improv and a solid beat from Joe and Barry. There is a range of emotions from fury to exhilaration that are felt immediately by the listener. Among the best is “Implications”.
