Lights and Shades celebrates my meeting with three well-known american musicians, who can boast an endless curriculum, and who have been playing together for a long time in the Vic Juris Trio. Four jazz players of the same generation share a very similar artistic process as far cultural background and musical visions is concerned. All the original compositions of the album (Vic Juris signs five of them), like our language, show the weight of a vast and heterogeneous experience, matured since the seventies when, with great passion and utopian projection, music input was absorbed of any kind.
