Artist Harry Whitney Trio
Title Far Yet Near
Label Evander Music - Em 047 -

Far Yet Near is the first album by 18 year-old composer and pianist Harry Whitney. This inspired collaboration with renowed musicians Cory Combs and Matt Aiken led to an original and personal album of jazz improvisation.

Consisting of 7 original compositions by Whitney and 5 trio improvisations, Far Yet Near explores spacious soundscapes which brings the music to life by giving as much breathing room as possible. Compositional playing is the driving concept behind the music. Group interaction is the main way the trio achieves this aim, using each others' musical space to create a vast musical landscape that, at times, sounds like more than a trio.
