Het Borderlands Trio uit New York, bestaand uit Stephan Crumb op contrabas, Kris Davis op piano en Eric McPherson op drums, brengt na hun geslaagde debuut Asteroida uit 2017 nu een dubbel cd uit met de titel “Wandersphere”. De twee cd’s bevatten vier improvisaties die in lengte variëren tussen de 20 en 40 minuten. Het album werd opgenomen in 2020 tijdens de corona pandemie in New York.

Jan van Leersum, rootstime.be, Sept 01 2021 (NL)

It begins so quietly, whispering out of silence like a ghost. The creaking door of Stephan Crump's arco bass, the hiss of Eric McPherson's brushes, the parsimonious delicacy of Kris Davis' piano notes. This is what opens Disc one of this two CD outing by the Borderlands Trio. The tune's following half hour's worth of improvisational expressionism—an exercise in filling the vacuum with free flowing musical ideas—gathers momentum, like an incoming storm, or maybe a colony of microscopic organisms reaching a population density that allows it to flourish, to thrive. To mutate to a level of success that will ensure its survival.
