Jamie Saft, Steve Swallow, Bobby Previte – You Don’t Know the Life (Rare Noise)

As with most of Jamie Saft’s records, the interweaving of originals and covers on You Don’t Know The Life is a mark of ingenious artistry at work. The multi-instrumentalist/composer and his simpatico compatriots create music that runs a remarkably broad gamut of emotions. And in its roughly forty-five-minute arc of feeling, a listener can end up equally drained and enlivened by this trio’s own journey through the heart and soul (and beyond).

“…classic organ-trio textures, with hints of vintage R&B and near-ambient trippiness.”

Tour Dates – Jamie Saft’s New Zion Trio February 2020

“It’s a one-of-a-kind thing. Jamie Saft, the high priest of acoustic groove and heir to Sun Ra’s spatial explorations, who also reigns over microtonal metal and maybe even rock-minded syncopation, is known for his unique, unwavering creative impulse.”

– Sons D’Hiver

February 1, 2020 – Jamie Saft’s New Zion Trio // Sons d’Hiver with Bill Laswell’s Method of Defiance, Paris.

February 3, 2020 – Kufstein, Austria // Kulturfabrik.

More performances to be announced.

“…and then there’s another song that was really the crucial harmonic basis for New Zion Trio….”
