Guy Mintus Trio - A Home In Between (PLEDGEMUSIC 2017)

The Guy Mintus trio led by Israeli award winning pianist and composer Guy Mintus featuring bassist Tamir Shmerling and Drummer Philippe Lemm. After three years of exploring their musical connection, playing many hours in rehearsal rooms, dark NYC bars and various concert halls around the US and Canada, the trio has finally entered to studio to make its first recorded statement. 

“A Home In Between” comprises of three originals, four re-imagined covers, a fully improvised piece created by the trio and a solo piano bonus track. 

The materials are varied and reveal the wide range of musical languages from which the trio derives inspiration. With their flexible and highly interactive approach the trio creates a deep synthesis from Israeli, Turkish and Greek folk to film music, from straight ahead jazz to completely freely improvised parts. 

The Album was recorded at Skillman Music Studios in Brooklyn, New York by Greg Gibaldi & Weixiong Wang on the 20th of June, 2016

Mix & mastering took place at London’s Oatmilk Studios by Roy Nadel.
