Ewart/Barefield/Tabbal Trio

CD design for Geodesic 001 - Beneath Detroit.

The CAC at the DIA series bridges gaps and fills in the blanks of Detroit – and global modern jazz history.
Ewart/Barefield/Tabbal Trio (Geodesic 001), which Bruce Lee Gallanter of Downtown Music Gallery called “a most auspicious beginning to a new label and a new series documenting an important era of avant/jazz performances in Detroit…A story is unfolding and we are being taken along for the ride.”
Detroit’s avant-garde had been pioneered by the likes of the Tribe collective and Strata when CAC founder/curator/composer/guitarist A. Spencer Barefield began producing concerts at the Detroit Institute of Arts in 1978. Over the next 13 years, he and other Detroit musicians backed-up or presented solo performances from innovators like Roscoe Mitchell, Lester Bowie, David Murray, Muhal Richard Abrams, Andrew Cyrille, Famoudou Don Moye, George Lewis, Oliver Lake and Hamiet Blueitt. “There were no two artists that were not entirely unique in the way they did things, their approach to music and their musical concept,” says Barefield. “We only did original works.”
