Matt Flinner Trio - Winter Harvest

Matt Flinner Trio - Winter Harvest

Building on their Music du Jour release of 2009, the Matt Flinner Trio is set to release Winter Harvest on January 31.

Winter Harvest is another collection of compositions written for their "Music du Jour" tours throughout the United States (reference: see Bill Graham's 2008 Mandolin Cafe feature article Flinner's Made-Fresh-Daily). On the tours, each trio member composes and rehearses with the group original compositions written the same day for use in that evening's performance.

Of the new recording with guitarist Ross Martin and bassist Eric Thorin, Flinner said "Winter Harvest is a more mature CD; we've done close to seventy of these shows now, so we're getting to choose fifteen tunes out of two hundred and six. We wanted to choose the few tunes that really defined the group and where we'd gone."

Beautiful Work! I look forward to the rest of the CD.
I too got a giggle from the cat's "Meow" smile

Great track - such a warm sound! The cat's miaow makes me think of my new kittens Esme (the tabby) and Vienna:
