These celebrated musicians offset the conventional or perhaps anticipated stylizations of jazz piano trio fare by personalizing, reconfiguring, and injecting a host of enchanting events into the grand schema. While they sustain a unique group-centric identity, the musicians toss in numerous curves and digressions with bristling shuffle grooves, tantalizing textures, high-heat, and swirling choruses.

Trio M

Active since 2006, this all-star jazz collective with bassist Mark Dresser and drummer Matt Wilson has toured all around the world and recorded two critically acclaimed releases,  The Big Picture (Cryptogramophone, 2007) and The Guest House (Enja/Yellowbird, 2012). Critics have described the group as "a magnificent unit" (Owen McNally, Hartford Courant), "an extremely empathetic union" (Mike Shanley, JazzTimes), "a trio with high ambitions and impressive reach" (Daniel Spicer, Jazzwise) and "three versatile progressive-jazz luminaries with decades of respective experience" (Time Out New York).  AllAboutjazz.com's Troy Collins adds, "Melford, Dresser and Wilson's thrillingly unpredictable performances update the venerable piano trio tradition with bold invention."
