Trichotomy - Strom     Jazz, Instrumental 20/03/2013
Musically assured with bold music vision, Fact Finding Mission places the Trio at the forefront of modern creative jazz. The trio sound is inventive and exciting with spirited group creativity.
Meaning stream, current or flow. It's upbeat and joyful - which sums up the album as a whole and was an easy choice as an album opener. I'd been listening to a bit of Avishai Cohen at the time and was inspired by the sense of energy in his group.
