“Songs often develop into territories unlike from whence they began, eliciting a sense of drama from the relative peacefulness of the piano trio environment.”- Dave Sumner, 17 Dots Blog, eMusic
Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett played elegant, creative jazz music in the trio format for many years, and their recordings are classics. The trio personnel rarely changed, generating symbiotic communication amongst the members that is rarely seen or heard today. Pram Trio is an exception. This piano trio has worked together for many years, and you can hear the echoes of those great Evans/Jarrett trios in their music. The group combines elements of the traditional jazz piano trio with contemporary styles of music both within and beyond the jazz genre. With a strong focus on collective improvisation, the trio shares the goal of creating the best music possible in the present moment.
