In this debut record of the Ahmad Hassan Muhammad trio, featuring Adam Frederick on electric bass, Phil McGowan on drums, and Ahmad Hassan Muhammad on piano, three musical voices express themselves within the intimacy of the jazz trio. 'Fly,' is a rich exchange of ideas, of playful questions and unexpected answers, of soulful interplay. It's songs develop naturally from their profound investment in the moment and in each other, blossoming throughout the album into innovative moments of color, of explosive exuberance at some times and quiet intensity at others. As babies we crawl. As children we walk and run. But flight is and will forever be Man's undying dream, a dream that the invention of the airplane has only intensified. The desire to inhabit the freedom, space, and openness of the sky will never leave us. But through his instrument, man can rise above and take flight. In 'Fly,' Frederick, McGowan, and Muhammad make their ascent into the stratosphere together.
