'Three words to thrive by' is as interesting for its uplifting jazz music as its is for the creative process behind the album. The trio of Emanuel Ruffler (piano), Rashaan Carter (bass) and Timothy Angulo (drums) starts off with discussions that becomes ideas, that then inspire them to make music.

”This trio is born of conversation. It’s origin, thought and dialogue is rooted in listening, sharing, and learning. We’ve developed a fairly regular routine in which a discussion precludes and completes a rehearsal or a recording. We’ve developed a trust that ushers these exchanges through a wide range of ideas and topics. These conversations forms the core of the music,” explains pianist Ruffler.

Their first single, “Jazz Dakar” was released on the 30th of October and was born after all three went to West Africa, where they were deeply touched by the history of slavery. The Gospel singer and activist, Valerie Troutt completes the piece with a melody originally meant for a horn. Troutt’s voice has similarities with Anita Baker’s and it is hard not to wish for more.
