It's that kind of trust that turns lack of rehearsal from disadvantage to advantage, lending it an exhilarating edge that comes from being placed in a new situation without any kind of safety net. Record producer/ambient music progenitor Brian Eno wrote, in his Oblique Strategies, "Honor thy error as hidden intention"; clearly a modus operandi for Samuel Blaser and his group. That this group can navigate Samuel Blaser's challenging composite of form and freedom with such effortless aplomb speaks to its growing chemistry, each member's ability to listen, and a collective musical
background that extends far beyond the jazz tradition.
