Great Waitress present their third album, Hue. First performing in 2009, the trio's debut album, Lucid (2011), on Splitrec was a dazzling offering on Jim Denley's institutional imprint. Their follow-up was Flock (2013), on Portuguese label Creative Sources. Hue is a sophisticated distillation of these. On Hue, free improvisations offer flourishing moments of intensity that give way to shy, tender passages. The deep, textural explorations of each instrument confirm the accomplished musicianship of Magda Mayas, Monika Brooks and Laura Altman and at times the record is so minimal it sounds closer to field recordings. This sparse real-time arrangement shows the performative class and collective listening of this trio, honed over seven years of working together. Great Waitress is strengthened by a staggering number of collaborations and solo works by its members. The wide-reaching influences and technique of each member converge on Hue in a way that makes close listening unavoidable.
