Slate Blue is a collection of newly written compositions by Ab Baars. These compositions and improvisations were inspired by the music of French composer Olivier Messiaen for which Baars has a deep passion.

The Ab Baars Trio stands as one of the longest running musical units in the Netherlands. Spearheaded by Ab Baars in 1990, along with fellow Dutch musicians Martin van Duynhoven and Wilbert de Joode the ensemble has developed into one of the most thrilling ensembles in modern jazz.
