About the Album

Continuing where they left off with their 2003 release Cycling, the Portland-based Upper Left Trio takes the classic piano trio form down a whole new path. Influenced as much by modern jazz and pop conventions of the last 30 years as by the trios of Bill Evans, Red Garland and Keith Jarrett, UL3's virtuosity and inspired original compositions put them at the vanguard of modern piano jazz. Of pianist Clay Giberson, JazzScene writes "...he makes every note important and the singing quality of his piano is, at times, something very beautiful."

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
