The Portland-based trio's third release further establishes them as a group to watch in coming years. With a deep musical connection, the trio explores through-composed lyrical originals letting the mood and intensity develop organically, always with a strong rhythmic foundation. Though referencing rock, pop and R&B influences, Upper Left Trio's music is still firmly rooted in the jazz of Keith Jarrett, Bill Evans and Chick Corea. From quiet, introspective ballads to their rhythmically romping anthems, they always sound like themselves. "...the music is fresh and simply stated. Being a fan of both E.S.T. and the Bad Plus, I enjoyed unpacking each tune..." -Radioio.
