ABOUT WILSON/ROSNES/WASHINGTON TRIO
This collaborative, co-led trio first performed together at a two-night sold-out New York engagement which saxophonist Steve Wilson fondly recalls as “one of the best musical experiences I’ve ever had.” Their inaugural engagement was a musical banquet of riches for each member of the band. Wilson says, “With the natural chemistry between us it was a profound experience that surpassed our expectations. The three of us have played together for many years, but this was the first time as a trio. In this not-so-common drummer-less format we’re able to appreciate each others’ voices even more.” Their combined résumés include a who’s who of jazz history, including such legendary names as Art Blakey, JJ Johnson, Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Tommy Flanagan, Dave Holland, James Moody, and George Duke. Now they’ve joined forces to make their own history. “Steve is such a lyrical musician. He plays with the spirit of an explorer, always searching for new ways to approach the music,” says pianist Renee Rosnes, whose own playing has been described as an exquisite balance of delicacy and power with witty and weighted ideas. “Peter Washington is known for his sound, consistency, great groove, and some of the most melodic bass lines of anyone playing,” says Wilson. The trio’s performances are imbued with an unlimited sense of interplay, and musical magic abounds.
