“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.”
- Scott Yanow, Author
We recorded a great show at WVIA-TV studios a while back – a concert and interview. The show aired last week and is now available to stream on the PBS website.
During the 1-hour show we play a bunch of our music and talk a bit about our writing styles, how we got together, what we love about playing together and much more. The whole thing was beautifully recorded in HD and we hope you’ll tune in to check it out.

We’ll be spending a week doing a bunch of educational work and playing a few concerts around Michigan and Indiana the last week of September. Music and inspiration. Look for us at a few of our favorites stops in the state. Details below…
Our bassist, Phil, has been invited to headline at the International Society of Bassists Convention – this year being held in in Fort Collins, CO. He was nice enough to bring along the whole trio and we thought we’d turn it into a tour. Hopefully if you’re in the area you’ll join us for one of the shows.

We had a fantastic trip to the Midwest earlier this month. While we were there we stopped in at Blue Lake Radio for an in-studio performance an interview with Lazaro Vega. We chatted about the new record, about how we got together as a trio and about other musical ideas. We also played a bunch of music from the new album right there in the studio.
Here’s the audio from that session in case you missed it live.

“…as good an example of trio communication as one can find in the modern piano trio canon, with each instrument contributing significantly to the impact of the whole. The pieces just fit together perfectly.”
TRI-FI is heading west this fall! Well, mid-west anyway. We’re really excited about it because we’ll be making a few stops in some brand new venues for us – The Jazz Showcase in Chicago, Merrimans’ Playhouse in South Bend, and Night Town in Cleveland – and we’ll be playing lots of music from our new four-star release, “Staring into the Sun.”

After traveling on foreign soils, Tri-Fi has decided to give the mother country some love. A very substantial tour of the upper-middle-northish-midwest is afoot. Completely block off your first week of October and follow us around the USA! We’re starting in Chicago at the Jazz Showcase on Monday September 29th and finishing in Cleveland on Sunday October 5th. We’ll be making stops in Kalamazoo, Detroit & South Bend along the way.
We’ve been posting videos of some of our performances in Denmark on our YouTube Channel. Have a look (and a listen), let us know what you think, and be sure to share the videos with your friends!
John 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”
