Just got myself a copy of Trio Of Doom the other week and I really like it. I'd never heard of it before and I wondered into a Virgin store in Paris and there it was. Great serendipity. Listened to it in the car on the way back to our holiday place.

I didn't know what to make of it's existence, and how I'd managed to miss it, until I read the liner notes and realised it wasn't released until 2007. Some of the posts here indicate that it would be released in 2006 but it has 2007 in the CD liner notes. Either way, it explains why I managed to miss it. It hasn't been around for that long and John McLaughlin hardly gets promoted much in music stores in Australia.

Yes, it does. You would bring in a fourth member, making your band a quartet ... Now, ok, this is the year 2006, we're on the Zappa Forum, and anything goes. So, whatever. But, don't try to make the Who or Zeppelin trios ...

It's not intended to broaden the definition, but broaden the discussion. I don't want to refer to Led Zeppelin or the Who as power trios. I'm talking about what it sounds like to me. Other than knowing that I'm listening to four guys rather than three the effect is the same. My point is that if you like the power trio sound then don't overlook bands who's fourth member is a vocalist.

I have to agree with Lumpy on this. Besides, Daltrey, Plant, and most lead vocalists from that era would blow a little harp and shake a mean tambourine from time to time.

I wasn't trying to redefine the power trio term, just make a composer's point about orchestration.

I completely understand your point, Poly. Just my obsessive, compulsive tendencies at work. To knit pick a bit more though, with three instrumentalists and lead vocalist, besides the occasional blues harp and tambourine shaking, you have the potential for four voices, and the human voice is an instrument too. OK, I'm done knit picking. Time to go back to organizing my underwear. 8)
