Trio This

The Jazz Piano Trio has long been the preferred format for many of our greatest pianists... first established by the likes of Earl Hines, Teddy Wilson, Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, Oscar Peterson, Wynton Kelly, Red Garland, Bill Evans and continued to this day by such sonic mavericks as Herbie Hancock, Keith Jarrett, Hank Jones, Cecil Taylor, and Brad Melhdau, among many others. Co-leaders Barney McAll & George Schuller follow this rich tradition only as a launching pad for new ideas and pathways yet undiscovered. Joined by bassist Matt Pavolka, Trio This will keep one eye planted on history while the other searches for the nearest exit.

GM Recordings is proud to announce an exciting new recording from Trio This entitled That (GM3050CD) to be released this December 2009. This is a collaborative project between Schuller and McAll, their first trio recording featuring originals from both composers as well as thoughtful re- examinations of works by Wayne Shorter, Henry Mancini, Les McCann as well as a rare English hymn by Geoffrey Shaw.

”McAll is partial to unleashing surprises himself, whether they be radical dynamic shifts - such as suddenly reducing a solo to the merest trickle of notes against thrumming bass and whispered cymbal chatter - or just finding bewitchingly unexpected turns to take in developing a melody. Masterful.” --The Sydney Morning Herald

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
