JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2014 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

Sun Trio at Rochester International Jazz Festival

The Finish group, "Sun Trio," had some great sound samples so we got to the Lutheran Church early. They have just released a new album, "In The Dreamworlds" and have a very hip and slinky sound. The trumpet player had foot pedals, effects and a sampler on a stand so he could grab snippets to play along with but he mostly played it straight. Their melodic bass player drove the tunes and soloed beautifully. The drummer had a light touch with brushes and plenty of dynamics with sticks. His solo was creative and musical.
