Luxembourg based guitarist David Laborier introduced this new project in May 2012 at the ‘Like A Jazz Machine’ festival in Dudelange, Luxembourg. With a repertoire of compositions written by the bandleader, the trio has earned critical acclaim for their debut performance:
‘His (Laborier’s) command of both busy, note-heavy rhythmic lines and more sparse, easy breathing melodies was impressive, but his composing and, above all, astute harmonizing with his two accompanists, also caught the ear.’ (Kevin Le Gendre – Echoes Magazine, UK)
‘Three’s A Crowd’ aims at exploring the sonic and atmospheric possibilities a drum-and-bass-less trio can offer, combining through composed material to the individual improvisational styles of its members.
David Laborier & Three’s A Crowd went into the studio in December 2012 and recorded their debut album entitled ‘Choices’. It was released at the Blues & Jazz Rallye Luxembourg on July 20th 2013.
