TRI-FI Jazz Trio

“Call it a relaxed yet fervent approach to express joy, wonder, surprise. The kind of qualities jazz lovers look for anytime they’re hungry for connection.”

This is our first recording with our collaborative trio. After playing together for a few years as the touring band with Curtis Stigers we decided to create this album of our own music. It’s an experiment that we think turned out even better than we hoped. We even had Curtis come and sing a tune with us – the one standard on the CD.

Matthew Fries – piano
Phil Palombi – bass
Keith Hall– drums

Curtis Stigers– vocals
