Tritticali CD review in Seattle Jazz Scene

Tritticali’s CD has received a nice review in Seattle Jazz Scene. Andrew Freund calls Trio Tritticali’s sound “… comfortable, organic, cohesive, and insidiously thrilling.”

An excerpt:

Trio Tritticali is both daring and conversational, a fascinating combination. They traffic in sensual release, but in the context of formal restraint. Their CD matches band originals and arrangements to Jobim’s Corcovado and Oliver Nelson’s Stolen Moments, visiting Argentine tango and keening Near Eastern mysteries, along with evocations of traditional Japan and other ports of call. Sometimes redolent of the hippest of salons, the music finds time to swing, while telling one overall, sly, knowing story.

Thanks for the kind words, Mr. Freund! Read the full review in Seattle Jazz Scene here.

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’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.
