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.
A deceptively subtle release of elegance and sophistication for the next
- Brent Black, Critical Jazz
What makes this a truly standout CD is the originality of all the tunes and
flawless precision the trio plays with.
- Rotcod Zzaj, Improvijazzation Nation magazine
There are stories inside these songs, carried by the finely-crafted
melodies, heightened by the interactions of the two keyboardists
and booted by the contributions of drummer Segger. Throw away your
expectations and just listen -
you will find much to like in this piano trio.
