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.
