Entangled Pathways (released Oct 2017) is a collection of original music performed by this acoustic trio with Bill Gilliam (piano, prepared piano), Kayla Milmine (soprano sax) and Ambrose Pottie (drum set) who met through the Toronto Improvisor’s Orchestra (TIO). Some pieces are composed using free floating melodies, jazz idioms and modal-chromatic tonalities while others are freely improvised creations. This music offers reflections on the rapidly changing and entangled terrains we live in and the many imagined pathways we could take.
“Although perhaps gestated by different processes, the 12 impressive tracks all seem to lead to a central concept of connectedness, alternate realities and divergent pathways that may yet resonate together like strands in a web; in other words, musical quantum entanglement.”

“Bringing together three highly-flexible improvisers, this trio can show hints of melodic tunefulness alongside a collective will to derail those same instincts and head for thornier ground” – Joe Strutt, Mechanical Forest, Oct 2017.
