I’ve now exhausted my favorite tracks from Trio’s first two seasons – their lo-fi production values and still-developing vocals bar them from the apex of my favorites list.
Tonight’s selection is the first song of Season 3, and thus the first ever “hi-fi” Trio recorded (and preserved) as a high quality wav rather than a crummy real audio file.
The song in question is a raucous, improvisational, up-tempo take on “Will It Ever Come.”
After I built my top fifteen list I was a little puzzled at the placement of this track on the upper half … it’s not nearly as definitive as some of the songs that I’ve highlighted so far. Yet, every re-listen proves its place: I wish every Trio could stay faithful to the framework of a tune while remaining this carefree and spirited.
