About the Album

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
