Hartford Courant: Michael Musillami Trio + 3 At Firehouse 12


The Hartford Courant‘s Chuck Obuchowski reviewed the Michael Musillami Trio + 3’s Friday night CD release event for From Seeds (Playscape Recordings) at Firehouse 12 in Sunday’s paper.

“Musillami writes intricate, complex jazz compositions with built-in spaces to allow for lengthy improvisation,” wrote Obuchowski. “In concert, as in the studio, he surrounded himself with musicians who share his fondness for musical adventure. The evening’s final tune, ‘Graphite,’ served as the most powerful example of Musillami’s egalitarian approach; it featured interactive improvised passages by all six musicians in different combinations.”

He added, “Musillami has developed a very distinctive guitar voice over the years. His early work was fluent and well-executed, but in recent years his playing has matured, along with his writing ability.”
