Of the many eclectic influences informing the Toby Koenigsberg Trio - Jarrett, Mehldau, Evans, Clusone 3, Elliott Smith - none are more apparent than that provided by their own inner voices. Fresh and spirited with prodigious chops and a depth of musical enterprise, the trio visits the Bud Powell gems "Oblivian" and "So Sorry Please" along with several dynamic originals and a poignant reading of "My Foolish Heart." The trio, with drummer Jason Palmer and bassist Tyler Abbott, is based in Eugene, Oregon where Toby is assistant Professor of jazz piano at the University of Oregon. He received his Master of Music from Eastman and pursued graduate study at the Peabody Conservatory.
