The Dan Briggs from BTBAM-led project offers a hefty helping of progressive music!
TRIOSCAPES started in the summer of 2011 when bassist Dan Briggs (Between the Buried and Me) contacted Walter Fancourt (tenor saxophone/flute) and Matt Lynch (drums) about working up a rendition of the Mahavishnu Orchestra classic “Celestial Terrestrial Commuters”. The group also messed around with a few original ideas with the intent of playing a one-off live show. Wazzlejazzlebof, the second single from the band’s debut album, Separate Realities, can be heard now over on AbsolutePunk.net HERE.
YES! Weekly, the Greensboro, NC entertainment magazine, just named Dan Briggs the region’s best bassist and TRIOSCAPES the best new band. YES! praises Briggs’ work: “his marathon bass runs for the progressive death metal quintet [BTBAM] are well noted, Briggs’ work with the newly formed Trioscapes to this point is equally impressive. The abrupt time signature changes remain, but his style in the fiery jazz-fusion trio recalls Jonas Hellborg considered cadences in the Mahavishnu Orchestra mixed with a little bit of Bill Laswell fuzz bass.” Read the full article HERE.
