Room to Dream Trio was recorded live at the Sonic Arts Research Centre in Belfast earlier this year featuring mainly compositions by drummer Stephen Davis, with pianist Alexander Hawkins and double bassist Neil Charles completing the line-up. The album also includes fine versions of Andrew Hill's 'No Doubt' (from 1968 released Blue Note quintet album Andrew!!!) and Ornette Coleman's 'Mob Job,' a piece Pat Metheny collaborated on included on his 1986 album with Ornette, Song X.

These three superb improvisers were also in Anthony Braxton's ''Standard quartet'' who toured this year pre-Pandemic. A substantial box set of recordings from that tour, for which the band had to prepare some 90 tunes in advance for, is thought to be in the works for future release. Room to Dream Trio, link to buy
