TRICHOTOMY

Sean Foran – piano

John Parker – drums

Samuel Vincent – bass

 Australian piano trio Trichotomy really need no introduction. Over the course of three compelling albums for Naim Jazz – Variations (2010), The Gentle War (2011), and Fact Finding Mission (2013), they have carved out a reputation as one of the most exciting trios in contemporary jazz combining the lyricism of EST and the energy levels of The Bad Plus while nonetheless finding their own unique melodic voice and ensemble sound. Inspired by a diverse range of influences from Aphex Twin to Vijay Iyer, and John Zorn to Tord Gustavsen, Trichotomy’s music combines a dense rhythmic focus with a refined melodic clarity.

Since their last album, a hectic schedule in Australia has recently seen them collaborate with chamber groups, video artists, string quartets and symphony orchestras.

They now return with their latest release, KNOWN-UNKNOWN on a new label, Challenge Records. In a distinct step into new territory electronic sounds merge with their acoustic improvisations, while the complexity of their compositions and group improvisations are balanced by graceful melodies and rich harmonies. This bold new work puts them firmly forward as a group with vision, depth and intensity. Vivid and bright, it is compelling listening.

 

They tour the UK/Europe in Jan/Feb 2017
