There are undoubtedly many piano trios in jazz. However, only very few of them have consistently done "their thing" as has the Marc Perrenoud Trio for many years to get inexorably to the top of their field. They have developed a language, which takes its inspiration from many sources like Esperanto and consequently can be learned and experienced by many. Opulently furnished harmony sequences remind you of Bach's work, but then you are reminded of rock fanfares in the next moment. Only a few minutes later, and we are in the delta of blues that takes us on swinging waters. Then back to ballads full of sensitivity, which almost call études to mind.

This double-DVD set teaches a method of simplified bolo fighting as was practiced by Filipino soldiers durring WWII. It is a direct and powerful system that stresses using basic attacks and the discipline of training with live steel. It is a long range fighting method and does not teach infighting or trapping of any kind, prefering instead to evade and slash, hack, or thrust from a distance. Though the name may sound unusual, the sun, moon, and wind refer to the three basic attack combinations in the system.
