After but one encounter between all the members of e'fessioux which resulted in their full length recording ('Jangala'), the fellas embarked on a live WFMU radio broadcast with good friend Irene Trudel hosting, mixing, and minding the helm. The result is this three track EP entitled 'three by four' for you to enjoy.

This excursion was instigated by three very minimal sketch ideas for each of the three improvs, by Messers. Smit, Smith, and Weisbach, constituting tracks one, two and three respectively. Only modality and perhaps a groove suggestion were uttered, but the instigators along with Mr. Foreman holding down the bottom end, had not played anything until they were cast into the belly of the WFMU studio, calmed by the ever-present Irene, who artfully created the live broadcast mix, generously splurged for some vittles and drink on what was a chilly and rainy January evening...but all an excellent hang, indeed!

Weisbach, Foreman, & Smith have known each other since childhood and have played together in various configurations over the decades.

Weisbach & Foreman, and yet this marks the 1st, and certainly not the last, encounter for Smith & Smit. No more 10 year intervals-we don't have that kind of time! ... more
