A/B Trio Tours "Out West" Project with Mike Murley

Edmonton rising jazz stars A/B Trio are gearing up to release their second album with Chronograph Records. Recorded with Canadian legend, saxophonist Mike Murley the quartet is headed out on tour in early December to build up the anticipation!

A/B Trio brings together three of Albertas most in-demand performing and recording jazz musicians Thom Bennett (drums), Dan Davis (saxophone), and Josh McHan (double bass). This ensemble is inspired by the open sounding, chordless groups of Sonny Rollins and Joshua Redman, as well as the work of Chris Potter and Ari Hoenig. Their material ranges from inventive re-interpretations of standards to modern, original repertoire and high-energy groove-based music. Its fresh, accessible and compelling music for all jazz lovers.

A/B Trios second album Out West, brings JUNO Award winner Mike Murley into the fold. One of Eastern Canadas most formidable improvisers, Mike has spurred the group forward into new musical territory. Compositionally, he interweaves two-part melodies, lush harmonies, and driving rhythms. In the groups performances, this means matching the ingenuity and intensity of Mikes improvising, both in a co-operative and in a musically competitive sense. Mike is both a natural fit and catalyst for the Trios vision.

The album will be available for pre-sale December 2nd and will launch for sale and on radio February 10, 2015.
