NCM East Records is pleased to announce the release of Transmissions (NCM 40118), the debut release from the Tim Ziesmer Trio. Transmissions, released on NCM East’s Green Series, features Ziesmer's original compositions which blend 20th Century classical elements with the freedom of avant-garde jazz improvisations and sensibilities of today's pop and rock music. The trio's improvisational stylings range from lyrical meditations to ambient soundscapes to atonal grooves and post-modern thrash. Complementing guitarist Ziesmer are Drew Gress (bass) and Brook Martinez (drums).
