Andy Nowak Trio

Drawing on influences ranging from the hard swinging Oscar Peterson trio through the pseudo classical inventions of Brad Mehldau to the atmospheric ideas of E.S.T., the trio play original compositions and interpretations of standards with effervescence and flair. With an emphasis on joy and risk taking, the trio weave a compelling tapestry of soundscapes and lyricism at once fresh and familiar.
