Maybe Monday – Fred Frith, Miya Masaoka and Larry Ochs – first unveiled its collaboration in 1997, on-stage at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall. In retrospect, this meeting seems almost inevitable: the three members of the group had been crossing paths foryears: Ochs with both Frith and Masaoka through numerous Rova projects, and Frith with Masaoka on a tour of Europe with Tom Cora.

Now for their third album – recorded at the East Side Sound Studio in New York – Maybe Monday have invited four guests: Gerry Hemingway, Carla Kihlstedt, Ikue Mori, and Zeena Parkins. The delicate mesh of electric and acoustic, ethnic and urban, traditional and experimental, sets up a mesmerizing dynamic in the music.



Maybe Monday – Fred Frith, Miya Masaoka und Larry Ochs – fanden vor gut 10 Jahren zusammen. Rückblickend war dieses Treffen geradzu zwingend: Die Wege der drei MusikerInnen haben sich über die Jahre mehrmals gekreuzt: Fred Frith und Miya Masaoka waren in zahlreichen Projekten von Rova beteiligt, Frith und Masaoka tourten bereits zusammen durch Europa.

Für dieses dritte Album haben Maybe Monday vier Gäste eingeladen: Gerry Hemingway, Zeena Parkins, Carla Kihlstedt und Ikue Mori. Das Septett malt fünf Klanggemälde. Die delikate Verzahnung von Elektronik und Akustik, Ethnik und Urbanem, Tradition und Experiment bringt eine atemberaubende Intensität in ihre Musik.
