MATT FLINNER TRIO

Winter Harvest

2012-01-14

Over the past four years, the Matt Flinner Trio has had a project in the works. During the winter months, while on tour, each member had to write one song per day. The resulting three songs would be taught to the other members and then performed that night at whatever venue they happened to be playing. The end result can be heard on the trio’s second release, “Winter Harvest”. (Appropriately titled, huh?) While the album was not recorded live (on said night), the writing and performance dates and locations are noted on the liner notes, providing an interesting look at the process. (“Winter Harvest” was actually recorded in just a couple weeks, in a studio in Matt Flinner’s hometown of Nashville.) This release is pretty much what I've come to expect from the trio....well-executed instrumental americana music. Rebecca Ruth
