Soul'd Out Presents
w/ Machado Mijiga
"Garage A Trois, aka guitarist Charlie Hunter, saxophonist Skerik and drummer Stanton Moore, return in the form from which they were born 22 years earlier with a new studio album, ‘Calm Down Cologne.’
A high-stepping mind/body elixir, ‘Calm Down Cologne’ finds Garage A Trois in full improvisational flight, composing live, in the moment, on the studio floor. Charlie Hunter on the Hybrid Big6 and Stanton Moore on the drums and cymbals are locked in a mountainous groove throughout. Simultaneously, Skerik conjures the melodic lines with one hand on the saxophone and the other on a clutch of analog keys: Modal 001 synth, Rhodes 54 and Mellotron, among them.
As for the rather curious album title, the story goes that legendary underground Seattle artist Rick Klu gave Skerik the idea when he was describing a bouncer having to use some ‘calm down cologne’ on an unruly patron. More metaphorically speaking, a whiff of Garage A Trois’ new magic potion elicits a “free your mind and your ass will follow” response—truly a much needed balm in these anxiety-ridden times.
Garage a Trois returns to Portland this Fall, to follow up on their sold-out show @ Star Theater in 2021. Get your tickets early!
