Tri-Fi

Matthew Fries, Phil Palombi and Keith Hall were brought together as the backing trio for jazz vocalist, Curtis Stigers, and toured extensively building up a level of musical communication that has become rare in the jazz world. With Tri-Fi they step into the spotlight and build on this musical chemistry with original compositions, new arrangements, and a vibrant swing in the tradition of the classic jazz piano trio. The result has been rave reviews.

“There is a big difference between a 'band' and musicians who just work together occasionally,” explains Hall. “Because we spend so much time together, there is a freedom that is expressed in our music. We always have lots of fun.”
