Tritticali at Freddy's - March 22 9pm

with special guest Tom Swafford
Tritticali becomes Quadritritticali. Tom Swafford, violinist and composer extraordinaire will be joining us for the first performance of “Mis(fit)”, an original string quartet by Leanne Darling, combining modern classical, blues with a rousing middle eastern finish. We’ll also play “Lost Spring”, an original quartet by Helen Yee, as well as a new Spanish arrangement by Tom.

We’re excited to play at the new location of this beloved Brooklyn venue. Freddy’s is in the heart of Park Slope on 5th ave. between 17th and 18th St.  Hope to see you there!

Clips from Circuitous Body, Nov 30 & Dec 1, 2012

We had a great time performing with Chris Ferris and Dancers, performing Loren’s music for string trio and electronics with added hammer dulcimer wizardry of Dan Joseph. If you missed the performance you can get a taste of it in these excerpts from the performances. Click the image to be taken to vimeo to view the video.

A glowing review of Tritticali's recent show

Tritticali just got a really nice write-up about our recent show at Cafe Vivaldi. Lucid Culture writes:

“Combining the exacting virtuosity of a classical ensemble with the wild improvisational edge of a jazz band, there’s no other group like them in the New York area.”

Check out the rest of the review here, and hope to see you at our next show!

Trio Tritticali - Our Mission

We’re looking forward to our season opener at Caffe Vivaldi. We’ll be playing our usual eclectic mix of tunes, original, jazz, world and funk. The video is a declaration of our mission, from our May performance.

It’s a preview of our concert opening piece in May 2012 at the Brooklyn Conservatory. The video will take you to Facebook, but we’ll be putting up a few videos up elsewhere on the web soon. And while you’re in Facebook-land, you can “Like” Trio Tritticali too!

Cherry blossoms in Linger Cafe's garden

This month at Linger we don’t know exactly what we’ll have in store for you. Maybe we’ll have some ‘double bow’ tunes courtesy of our cellist, Loren Dempster, perhaps our seasonal favorite Sakura in mixed meter, perhaps some previews of our upcoming Roulette show on April 22 with Chris Ferris Dance? What we do know:  this is a comfortable, casual setting where we can experiment and surprise your ears, and Jessica can make your taste buds and tummy happy. We hope you’ll come on out to enjoy brunch with us!

Trio Tritticali’s Issue #1 named “One of 2011′s Best Albums”

Tritticali instrumentsLucid Culture reviewed Trio Tritticali’s debut album, and we’re honored to be named as one of the best albums of 2011.

“…Trio Tritticali have just released their new Issue # 1, one of the most gripping, intelligent, richly eclectic albums of recent years. Drawing on elements as diverse as Egyptian dance vamps, the baroque, bossa nova, tango and European Romantic chamber music, they blend those styles together seamlessly and imaginatively for a bracingly intricate sound that’s uniquely their own.”

“…This is one of those albums where every time you listen to it, you’ll discover something new – you can get lost in this music. With compositions like this, it won’t be long before Trio Tritticali will be playing big stages like Symphony Space; for the moment, you can catch them at low-key Brooklyn brunch spot Linger Cafe…”

And yes, we’re playing Linger Cafe on Sunday, December 11 at 2pm.
