JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2014 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.
