Simon Nabatov/Darren Moore/Takashi Seo
‘Live in Matsuyama’

‘Live in Matsuyama’ is a result of circumstance. The performance was not intended as a recording, but occurrences arranged themselves to produce this fortuitous outcome. The rhythm section of pianist Simon Nabatov, bassist Takashi Seo and drummer Darren Moore were set to engage in a nine-city Japan tour with saxophonist Akira Sakata in early December 2019, but Sakata missed the first three shows due to unforeseen circumstances. ’Live in Matsuyama’ documents the third and final trio performance, which is marked by intuitive communication that wheels from state to state with restless motion. Nabatov, Seo and Moore move as if a single entity producing murmurations of sound; darting fluid formations that arise and dissipate with virtuosic agility.
