NEW EP AVAILABLE NOW
"With the EP, I wanted to experience the familiar standards in a stripped-down and exposed way. I kept the arrangements based on original forms, but suited for the acoustic trio instead of a big band. The trio had a lot of freedom, in that regard, to explore the space and find new ways of giving the songs life. With Sway, a favorite of mine, I tried to develop a minimal yet hypnotic line that would propel the piece forward. Jazz vocal standards presented in the modern trio context seems to be a under-estimated area that has lots of potential for creativity." Dani Ahndreç EP Pianist and Musical Arranger
Every member is a extremely talented accomplished musician who performs with other bands, recording artists touring or at local venues and are hired on a regular basis for studio recording sessions. They also teach their craft professionally. When everyone comes together to form this amazing trio it's a incredible experience to witness live!
