Tritticali CD review in Seattle Jazz Scene

Tritticali’s CD has received a nice review in Seattle Jazz Scene. Andrew Freund calls Trio Tritticali’s sound “… comfortable, organic, cohesive, and insidiously thrilling.”

An excerpt:

Trio Tritticali is both daring and conversational, a fascinating combination. They traffic in sensual release, but in the context of formal restraint. Their CD matches band originals and arrangements to Jobim’s Corcovado and Oliver Nelson’s Stolen Moments, visiting Argentine tango and keening Near Eastern mysteries, along with evocations of traditional Japan and other ports of call. Sometimes redolent of the hippest of salons, the music finds time to swing, while telling one overall, sly, knowing story.

Thanks for the kind words, Mr. Freund! Read the full review in Seattle Jazz Scene here.

“On a String and a Prayer” May 10, 2014 @ 7pm

“On a String and a Prayer” is a spirited evening of dance, music and storytelling that celebrates Spring in the tradition of the Seasonal Saturday Sanctuary Salon Series at Seven. The Salon will feature violist, Leanne Darling, cellist Loren Dempster, and violinist, Helen Yee. Helen, Leanne and Loren are from the acclaimed Trio Triticalli, known for “going where no string trio has gone before!” The dancers and musicians will explore ideas that blur the lines between dancer and musician, and which comes first-movement or music? In the tradition of Mark Lamb Dance the musicians often times put down their instruments and dance, or sometimes, even dance while they play. Other performers will include dancers and choreographers Edwardo Brito, Madison Krekel, Mark Lamb, Sarah Pope, and Jennifer Wilenta.

We’ll also play “Lost Spring”, an original quartet by Helen Yee, as well as a new Spanish arrangement by Tom.

We’re excited to play at the new location of this beloved Brooklyn venue. Freddy’s is in the heart of Park Slope on 5th ave. between 17th and 18th St.  Hope to see you there!

Clips from Circuitous Body, Nov 30 & Dec 1, 2012

We had a great time performing with Chris Ferris and Dancers, performing Loren’s music for string trio and electronics with added hammer dulcimer wizardry of Dan Joseph. If you missed the performance you can get a taste of it in these excerpts from the performances. Click the image to be taken to vimeo to view the video.

A glowing review of Tritticali’s recent show

Tritticali just got a really nice write-up about our recent show at Cafe Vivaldi. Lucid Culture writes:

“Combining the exacting virtuosity of a classical ensemble with the wild improvisational edge of a jazz band, there’s no other group like them in the New York area.”

Check out the rest of the review here, and hope to see you at our next show!

Trio Tritticali - Our Mission

We’re looking forward to our season opener at Caffe Vivaldi. We’ll be playing our usual eclectic mix of tunes, original, jazz, world and funk. The video is a declaration of our mission, from our May performance.

It’s a preview of our concert opening piece in May 2012 at the Brooklyn Conservatory. The video will take you to Facebook, but we’ll be putting up a few videos up elsewhere on the web soon. And while you’re in Facebook-land, you can “Like” Trio Tritticali too!

April 15 a Tritticali Sunday brunch

Cherry blossoms in Linger Cafe's garden

This month at Linger we don’t know exactly what we’ll have in store for you. Maybe we’ll have some ‘double bow’ tunes courtesy of our cellist, Loren Dempster, perhaps our seasonal favorite Sakura in mixed meter, perhaps some previews of our upcoming Roulette show on April 22 with Chris Ferris Dance? What we do know:  this is a comfortable, casual setting where we can experiment and surprise your ears, and Jessica can make your taste buds and tummy happy. We hope you’ll come on out to enjoy brunch with us!
