Tritticali-looking

This month at Linger we will be bring you ‘double bow’ tunes courtesy of our cellist, Loren Dempster, a new Arabic arrangement and some exotic selections as well from our violist, Leanne Darling, and we’ll sprinkle in some sprightly Celtic tunes. Also, we’ll be plugging and getting ‘loopy’ to preview selections from our upcoming Roulette show on April 22. 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…”

You can read the full review here.

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

Tritticali recording our new CD

In late April, Trio Tritticali jumped into a car and drove to Trick Dog Recording, in scenic Glen Spey, New York to begin work on our new CD. Paul Mitchell, engineer extraordinaire, had recorded two of Invert’s releases as well as Leanne’s solo CD a few years ago, so we are sure we are in good hands. We’re now in the process of editing and mixing the CD with Paul, and we’re hoping to have a finished product sometime this summer. Stayed tuned!

Trio Tritticali excerpts


Excerpts from a Trio Tritticali performance December 2010, with Leanne Darling on viola, Helen Yee on violin, Loren Dempster on cello.

In this video we’re all decked out in formal, classical-like garb—not our usual attire at brunch! We hope you all can come to our next show at Linger Cafe and Lounge on February 27, but we probably won’t be disguised as a classical string trio. You can expect our eclectic mix of musical genres, accompanied by yummy brunch fare prepared by proprietress, Jessica Pichardo.

Trio Tritticali will be playing our last gig of the year, and we’d love to have a chance to see you all. Winter’s is truly making itself felt, but fortunately the warm ambience and soul-satisfying fare at Linger will keep Jack Frost from nipping at your nose.

One set only. We hope to see you there!
