: i don't know....I have been a fan of the Trio since the beginning. The nice thing
: about the trio is that there was always that sound. When Dave left, there was Bob
: and Nick. John, even with his vibrato couldn't affect the sound of the other 2/3's
: of the group! (Bob told me once in a radio interview years ago that they would have
: to reign in John's vibrato from time to time.) Believe me, I love John. Pretty
: much have everything he ever recorded, which is saying something. But the trio
: sound was always there. I also have a lot of respect for the quality of the
: current trio. They are fine musicians and always do the material justice.
: But I am not a fan. The voices to me verge on being operatic and that is not the
: Trio as I knew them. What is coming in October? Who knows. Mr. Shane obviously
: has his motives. But, it appears that it is his candy store to do with as he
: pleases. Perhaps it is legacy. Perhaps Mr. Shane would like to join the discussion
: and enlighten us? Not that it is any of our business...
: Bottom line: If the new incarnation is poor in quality, then it won't survive.
: Pretty simple. Sad, but true.
