The guitar/bass/drum trio Flatland found inspiration in the work of Charles Gayle, Sonny Sharrock & Albert Ayler. Most importantly, they stab at the seminal '70s free harmonic jazz of Keith Jarrett's Quartet and the collective Old and New Dreams Quartet, a spacious sound of group interplay where silence is a part of the band. Finding themselves performing in rock venues as much (or more) than jazz rooms, Flatland is connected to the world of Charlie Hunter, John Scofield and others who blur the lines of modern jazz and progressive rock. ... trippy guitar-bass-drums lunar orbit. Flatland is an anti-power trio, shedding rock heaviness in favor of more delicate thunder." - Willamette Week. Originally released in 1998.
