ABOUT ABOUT

Along with bassist Alexander Pershounin and drummer Tim Crumley, Mike Conrad explores the music of some of the great trios in jazz, from Oscar Peterson to Bill Evans to Brad Mehldau and beyond. Conrad says, “the trio format allows for maximum interaction, expressiveness, and creativity — all of the things that are beautiful about jazz music!”
