On the Next Echoes, one conversation with three artists who have put out an album called Seven Conversations. They are trumpeter Jeff Oster, guitarist Vin Downes and multi-instrumentalist Tom Eaton. It’a an album of true ambient improvisation. Three musicians in intuitive communion.

Tom Eaton: I think this project is something we could only make with the three of us sitting together in a room. I couldn’t even imagine doing this, like, as overdubs. Like one of us starting something and sending it off to the other guy or whatever. It just, it wouldn’t make any sense. So I think it has to happen with the three of us together.

This is what great music sounds like when musicians actually perform together in one room. We talk to them in three different rooms across three thousand miles or so.
