All compositions by Provey/Gorry/Gunsberg

Collective Expression, the debut album from the improvising trio of Vance Provey (Trumpet), Bob Gorry (Guitar), and Paul Gunsberg (Drums and Saxophone), is a focused musical exploration with three distinct personalities combining into a unified expression of the musical moment. The trio has a cohesive sound contrasting Provey’s luxurious trumpet tone providing sharp attacks, inventive motifs and languid long tones with Gorry’s guitar work that varies from rapid fire lines to melodic counterpoint to ambient encouragement. Gunsberg’s drums propel everything with an unhurried pulse and layers of compelling rhythms while his abstract soprano saxophone takes things to a whole new level.

Collective Expression is a wonderful testament to interaction and improvisation that expands and contracts, grinds and soars. From the lively introduction that is "Cyclone" to the ever-evolving "Miles to Go," the dialogue between the players—their melodies, timbre, and pace—is continually shifting as they respond to each other's individual and collective voices. New conversations and ideas are found on each return listen to Collective Expression and Provey, Gorry, and Gunsberg make it remarkably enticing to keep coming back to investigate further.
