this is my last trio recording.  it's from 2012.  ben rubin, bass.  tony mason, drums.  i wrote all the tunes but one and took the cover photo.  

'This longtime working band, led by the sly pianist- raconteur Dred Scott, recently released “Going Nowhere” (Ropeadope), a good showcase for its puckish but aggressive take on postbop aerodynamics.' ny times
