Parker Abbott Trio Parker Abbott Trio

The Parker Abbott Trio is a keyboard-centric group of Toronto based musicians exploring the intersections between two pianists and a drummer, and using a huge sonic palette to do so. Beginning in 2010 as a duo of pianists Teri Parker and Simeon Abbott, the group was expanded into its current trio formation in 2011 with the addition of percussive powerhouse Mark Segger. Using a plethora of keyboard instruments and a pan-stylistic approach to composition and improvisation, the trio has created an utterly original, multi-faceted jazz group.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
