The Tiger Trio operates at the velocity of joy, spinning cali soul-tinged improv and spiraling impressionist grooves. This is the return of the party band, all smiles and sweat and grind, Archie Bell and Ornette combined, with an occasional Cap’n Jazz yowl for good measure. The Tiger Trio is Chris Brantley, drums; Jesse Levine, organ; Gary Pyskacek, bass. The Tiger Trio was born from wont of live dance music, experiments in motion and speed and improvisation. The Tiger Trio tears and swings violently within a groove, jumping touchstones of melody towards rhythmic crescendo.
