TRi/O is a groove-based contemporary jazz & funk outing featuring electric mallet keyboards, from three like-minded New York musicians: Steve Shapiro on vibraphone and mallet keyboards, virtuoso 5-string bassist Dave Anderson, and drummer Tyger MacNeal. Their original repertoire and dynamic musical interaction set TRi/O apart in the genres of jazz, percussion, and electronic music - especially through experimentation with customized live-loops and the electronic mallet controller, which allows the band to explore progressive new territory. Try The Veal was recorded in late 2019 and early 2020, right before the pandemic struck. With future sessions cut short, the resulting album yielded a number of first-takes, full of spontaneous energy.
