Notes in Triplicate (Nathan Corr on guitar, Nick Maclean on keyboards, and Rick Pearlman on drums) played their debut performance at the Avant-Garde Bar on July 26. The absence of a bass wasn't even noticeable, as the trio celebrated and improvised on a series of mostly up-tempo jazz standards by Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock, and Anthony Wilson and Larry Goldings, among others.

Their third set featured an original by Maclean, "Penance", which showed the trio in a more thoughtful mode. The Ottawa-based musicians first started playing together two months ago, and have another gig on August 22 at Pressed.
