Constantly swinging, harmonically rich & with infectiously inviting compositions, the members of Live Edge Trio earned their rapport through many gigs and recordings over their years on the Denver music scene. Now all on faculty at the University of Wyoming, they've found inspiration in formalizing the group and further refining their collective musical voice. For "Closing Time," pianist Ben Markley, bassist Seth Lewis and drummer Andy Wheelock, are joined by the incomparable New York vibist Steve Nelson, who jazz critic Ted Panken called "... The most completely realized and original performer on the vibraphone." Together, their sound may hearken back to the MJQ, but with a dynamic and ensemble interplay all their own through their five originals and takes on the jazz classics "Old Folks," and Horace Silver's "Cape Verdean Blues."
