Notes and Editorial Reviews

Brian Willson, percussion; Dominic Duval, bass; Yuko Fujiyama, piano and percussion

THINGS HEARD UNHEARD is the first recording by Brian Willson as a leader. This recording is a combination of completely free improvisation-no guidelines whatsoever other than listening-and composed pieces, nothing written, but discussion of the nature of the work to be performed. Influenced by free jazz of the 60's, world music, and contemporary, Willson fuses these elements into a diverse amalgam of improvised music-some pieces are classic free piano, bass and drums, evidence of the strong Cecil Taylor influence abounds, others are evocative of Eastern culture utilizing sounds and instruments particular to Tibet, Japan and China, evoking
Read more images of Buddhist ritual. Brian had played with Yuko and Dom individually and they enjoyed a long friendship collectively, but this was the first musical meeting of this trio of gifted musicians. The recording is a culmination of years of performing for Brian Willson.
