Trio This
New release!

The Jazz Piano Trio has long been the preferred format for many of our greatest pianists…first established by the likes of Earl Hines, Teddy Wilson, Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, Oscar Peterson, Wynton Kelly, Red Garland, Bill Evans and continued to this day by such sonic mavericks as Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett and Brad Melhdau, among many others. Co-leaders Barney McAll & George Schuller follow this rich tradition only as a launching pad for new ideas and pathways yet undiscovered. Joined by bassist Matt Pavolka, Trio This will keep one eye planted on history while the other searches for the nearest exit.

That is a collaborative effort between Schuller and McAll, their first trio recording featuring originals from both composers as well as thoughtful re-examinations of works by Wayne Shorter, Henry Mancini, Les McCann as well as a rare English hymn by 19th century composer Geoffrey Shaw.

“Composition and performance balance beautifully throughout this collection of originals and a few covers.”
— DownBeat

“The Eastern Seaboard-based Trio This have a lot of that, those, and them going on. From a beautiful modern jazz perspectiv…this album comes easily recommended among the glut of efforts in this format, rising well above most of them.”

That is good music, good listening, an intimate session of like-minded players having fun creating a memorable experience. Ease into it and allow the sweet sounds to take hold.”
