The Joel Yennior Trio

The Joel Yennior Trio is regarded as one of the most original and innovative sounds in the current music scene. Best known for his work with the critically acclaimed Either/Orchestra and the adventurous quartet Gypsy Schaeffer, here Yennior employs the talents of guitarist Eric Hofbauer (Han Bennick, Muhal Richard Abrams) and percussionist Gary Fieldman (Bill Friesel, Joanne Brackeen) to round out his ensemble. The absence of a bass creates a host of new possibilities for the trio, and allows each musician to adopt a fresh approach to his traditional role in a small jazz group.

“Every jazz musician who transcends passing music fashions has a ‘signature sound.’ Duke Ellington told me, “a musician’s sound is his soul.” Trombonist Joel Yennior’s Big City Circus is ‘soul music’ – beyond categories. This is a recording that will reverberate in listener’s autobiographies long after the music stops.”

    -Nat Hentoff, Renowned Author and NEA Jazz Master
