About the album
Triocity is the collective trio of drummer Rich Thompson, bassist Jeff Campbell and multi-woodwind player Charles Pillow, all longtime faculty members of the acclaimed Eastman School of Music and partners in numerous musical projects over the years. Along with Pillow's use of clarinet and flute, the sonic qualities and harmonic opportunities afforded the non-chordal ensemble creates an intimate, conversational recording of this collection of jazz, bebop, and tin pan alley classics. "Pillow eschews the virtuoso trap achieving instead an uncanny knack of evoking the exact right setting, tone, and voice for each of his horns." - Amazon.
