Down Blue Marlin Road

First trio recording by Esposito who critic John Zwed says plays with “…the lustrous clarity of a gamelan band…using repetition so brilliantly that crystalline forms accrue from it.”


“… A virtuoso feat of re-composition as well as performance… jazz purified to the essence.” Kyle Gann - Village Voice


Highly individual deconstruction/ reconstruction of some of Jazz’s most ridden warhorses by a stunningly interactive trio of pianist John Esposito with bassist Ira Coleman and drummer Peter O’Brien.


Recorded, mixed and mastered October 2003 by Scott Petito at NRS Studio, Catskill, NY. Released 2006.
