TRI-FI Jazz Trio

“The trio are as smooth and sleek as you could ask, but when grit and grease and a little R&B are required, the musicians are never at a loss.”

- Clive Davis, The London Times

DownbeatJohn Ephland over at Downbeat Magazine gives our new album, Staring into the Sun, a really nice 4-star review. Here’s what he says:

“Tri-Fi’s newest collection of originals is the best example yet of their intimate group interplay… 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”
