“Simply a with it, happening piano jazz trio, they don’t pander but they play to please. Echoing any or all of your fave straight ahead piano trios of the past, these are all solid players that don’t need to go for pyrotechnics as their quiet fire lights the way well past the usual pas de trios.”

TRI-FI is back with our third release aptly titled “3.” Since 2003, we have been developing what reviews describe as an unmistakable sound – contemporary, full of vibrant swing and deeply rooted in the tradition of the classic piano trio.
Recorded in NYC (with the help of a few hundred of our closest friends) this new album is made up of entirely original compositions, and recorded with obsessive attention to sound quality. We think it’s our best outing to date and we hope you enjoy it! Give it a listen.
Matthew Fries – piano
Phil Palombi – bass
Keith Hall– drums

This recording was made possible by the enthusiastic support of our fans who contributed to our Kickstarter campaign. A special thanks to Adrian Herring at Herring Shoes – maker of some of the finest shoes in the world. We wear Herring Shoes and you should too!
This recording is dedicated to the memory of Ed Thigpen, a mentor and friend to us and so many other musicians.
"More important than the individual selections is the general sound of the trio and their telepathic interplay. Tri-Fi has succeeded at both developing its own musical personality and creating music that can only come from a group of like-minded musicians. ..."
