My latest project is called Trio Brasileiro. We play a new crop of my original compositions that draws from Latin, Brazilian, funk and jazz influences and we balance them with some Brazilian and Latin classic standards. The core of the group is a trio featuring me on piano and Rhodes, plus longtime cohort Gregory Ryan on electric bass and new associate Alex Kautz on drum set. Whenever possible we augment the group with the percussion talents of either Gilad or Rogerio Bocatto and guitarist Freddie Bryant. Our first recording has yet to be released, but you can preview some of our new recordings right here! Enjoy.
Bennett Paster (piano & Rhodes), Gregory Ryan (electric bass), Alex Kautz (drums), Gilad (percussion)
