Lerner, Brubeck, Fraser (the Ugly Beauties)

The Ugly Beauties Trio is a configuration of some of Canada’s top improvisers- Marilyn Lerner - piano, Matt Brubeck - cello and Nick Fraser ­drums. Named for Thelonius Monk’s composition Ugly Beauty,the UBs music encompasses worlds of improvised music and modern jazz, with strong elements of contemporary classical music. With a repertoire consisting of an organic mixture of both written and improvised material our sound can best be described as abstract lyricism, with swing and groove as part of the mix! We just recorded our second CD at the Glen Gould Studio in March of 2015 and will release it this fall.(thank you Canada Council!)
