The Cleveland Trio disk has had its official release and is available here. the disk documents a rare performance of the trio, (josh smith- sax (sanfrancisco), carmen castaldi - drums (cleveland), jeremy bleich - bass (santa fe) at the 2007 high mayhem festival.
The Cleveland Trio' is a beautiful document of this group playing in it's most natural environement of free improvisation, and spontaneous composition, carefully mixed, mastered and presented with fantastic cover artwork by Ben Dewey, a great artist and fellow native Lakewoodite!
The disks are printed on recycled chipboard 4 panel covers printed by stumptown printers using natural organic dye in portland oregon and have been carefully mixed by josh and mastered by jeremy. This cd represents the culmination of a 10 year long relationship of free exploration by 3 of cleveland's most celebrated improvisers.....

here is a review from the performance:

"...The way people were talking about the set by improvisational jazz group Cleveland Trio, you would have thought the sky had fallen". - The Santa Fe Reporter

eftah

eftah (open) is the fruit of twelve months of careful development of composition, form, improvisation and electronic manipulation sourced and sampled from the oud, an ancient arabic lute. The music is - in aesthetic - an extension of traditional forms incorporating sufi chant and taqsim as well as modern developments in playing and avant electronica. The oud is used as the main sound source (w/ some voice and clapping added). The instrument is recorded in complete performance, sampled and then manipulated digitally to create the final pieces. Samples of the oud are layered and effected to design sound enviroments ranging from ambient sheets to harsh percussive attacks.

this music began as a collaboration between andrew stoltz and jeremy bleich for an art installation but changed shape when the duo got invited to perform at the nweamo international electronic music festival (www.nweamo.org). this festival was held in Mexico City, Portland, OR and San Diego, CA. eftah was also invited to perfrom at the High Mayhem experimental music festival (www.highmayhem.org) in Santa Fe, NM. the focus was then shifted to produce a full length recording which was completed in the fall.

in addition to collaborative pieces, there are also 3 short songs included - solo oud pieces recorded using various techniques.
