Begun in earnest as an acoustic jazz trio in 2005, pianist Bob Ravenscroft, bassist Dwight Kilian and drummer Rob Moore's thirst to traverse destinations beyond worked its way into their rehearsals, performances, and then into weekly recording sessions in their studio outside of Phoenix. Phantasmagoria offers 21 moments, or vignettes. Sometimes a brief piano statement, or a fierce '60s free-jazz explosion, or, as in the opening "Commencement," shimmering synths suggesting a prog-rock introduction only to lead into a free jazz drum solo. From pristine solo piano pieces such as Icicles or Pure Light, to the darkened urban landscapes of Traffic Jam, Unrest and Mad Jazz Tea, or the ethereal synth explorations of Wandering, Inner Journeys achieves a deeply moving and atmospheric sound that travels through jazz and beyond.

Reviews of Phantasmagoria

Midwest Record (Chris Spector)
A little prog, a little seventh galaxy, a little church basement, Ravenscroft and his gang mixmaster a load of influences that have influenced them along the way, put it in their own mixmaster and take off for the outer reaches that players have been reaching for since George Russell first blasted off. Space heads rejoice--it's done right here.‚Äč ...
