“There is an energetic unity and balance...as the musicians communicate musically as equals, allowing one another to shine as individuals while maintaining the integrity of the music as a cohesive and singular artistic expression.”

Downbeat: A TRI-FI Christmas – Holiday Music Roundup
"A Tri-Fi Christmas is one of the more surprising holiday records jazz fans will hear this season."
Tri-Fi is a terrific piano trio based out of New York City featuring Matthew Fries on piano, Phil Palombi on bass and Keith Hall on drums. And A Tri-Fi Christmas is one of the more surprising holiday records jazz fans will hear this season. The cover promises total schlock, but don’t be fooled. In the finest jazz tradition, this tight-knit trio turns tired chestnuts into launchpads of improvisation. On the menu are songs you’ve heard a million times, like “Frosty The Snowman,” “Joy To The World” and “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” done in amazingly tasteful, interesting ways.
