SOME COOL REVIEWS
"Trinity One is contemporary jazz music with Ray Lyon's personal note. The brightness of his sonic perfection is only surpassed by his outstanding creativity as passionate and ardent composer."
~ Hans-Bernd Hulsman, smooth-jazz.de
“...a suite for jazz trio inspired by various Bible verses and the result is melodically skew yet mysteriously coherent. You have no idea where these tunes are going, but when they get there it all seems to have made sense."
~ Hobart Taylor, KUCI 88.9 FM, Irvine, CA
"...the music always has direction and stays rooted in music written in the fires of idiomatic fusion, extending from Chopin to Zawinul and in Hancock as well as Cecil Taylor. No matter what the music aligns itself with in terms of style, it is always uniquely Ray Lyon in tone and manner."
~ Raul de Gama, The Jazz Word
"If Pat Metheny played piano instead of guitar, he might sound like this."
~ Mike Greenblatt, The Aquarian Weekly
"Once upon a time there was a category of music termed “Modern Contemporary Music” which was more sophisticated than rock and soul, but not as self-indulgent as a lot of modern jazz. Keyboardist Ray Lyon taps into that root along with masters Jimmy Haslip/b and Bill Berg/dr for some swinging tunes with biblical themes. Don’t let that thought scare you, as the prophets and apostles knew a bit about “soul” music..."
~ George W. Harris, Jazz Weekly
"Trinity One is presented by 3 veteran fusion players, that happen to also be long-time friends, it is in this chemistry the music is elevated to a higher level of consciousness, which benefit the listener's experience. There is a distinctly spiritual theme to the record, and one that edifies the ear and soul with an uplifted experience."
