The Ben Carr Trio are a modern jazz outfit, exploring a diverse musical world through composition and improvisation. The instrumentation of Tenor Saxophone, Contra Bass and Drum Kit, combine to deliver swinging jazz arrangements, lyrical balladry, the indomitable multi layered polyrhythmic brew, and the unexplained.
“This music is inspired, and crafted, by the day to day routine of living as a contemporary musician. Our aim, through practice, refinement and performance, is to enhance each musicians personality, and become congruous in composition.” Ben Carr
The Ben Carr trio’s latest album ‘Phosphorescence’ is available through crackbellrecords.com

“Truth and Beauty” The last time pianist Bill Evans phoned singer Tony Bennett he told him “just remember two things: truth and beauty. Remember those two things and you’ll be ok.” Inspired by these thoughts, Gianni has assembled a trio to explore this concept in music. These are special musicians Gianni has played, toured and recorded with over many years who share his vision. The trio features Tony Gould on piano, Frank DiSario on double bass and Gianni on Flugelhorn and Trumpet. This ensemble creates an incredible tapestry of colour and sound. Exploring original music, standards and folk tunes, this is a unique journey into pure melodicism.
