From the opening swells of this striking debut recording, one can sense that there is deep listening taking place among this trio’s members. Entirely improvised in the afternoon of their first meeting, Speak, Moment cascades from gorgeous mountaintop revelation fanfare to rough hewn and ragged noise. Altogether, it is an opening salvo, a profound and unrepeatable moment in the lives of these three remarkable musicians. Dave Harrington, Max Jaffe, and Patrick Shiroishi have bewilderingly stacked CVs and accolades from here to the moon. Together, on Speak, Memory, they establish hypnotic and richly textured guitar-driven tapestries colored with the effervescent thread of a yearning saxophone melody that might be torn loose in an instant by thunderous percussion or febrile grooves.
