LiveStock Online Ep. 11 Feat. A/B Trio and Billie Zizi!
Based out of Edmonton, the AB Trio brings together three of Alberta’s most in-demand performing and recording musicians—Thom Bennett, Dan Davis, and Josh McHan.
This new group is inspired by the open sounding, chordless groups of Sonny Rollins, Joshua Redman, Gerry Mulligan/Chet Baker and Joe Lovano’s collaboration with Dave Holland and Elvin Jones. Their material ranges from inventive re-interpretations of standards to modern, original repertoire and high energy groove-based music.
