Trio Tribute Trilogy

Christopher Simmons Trio

Christopher Simmons - Piano, Artie Roth - Bass, Steve Davis - Drums.

"Chris has come up with a list of beautiful tunes, some familiar, some less known, and found his own original way of presenting them. His approach has nothing to do with "chops" or ego. Rather than show off his hands, Chris has chosen to put the music first. He makes us aware of the melody and the real feeling of the tune. Support from Artie Roth & Steve Davis couldn't be better." ~ Don Thompson, OC

"Canadian expatriate pianist/composer Christopher Simmons offers a lyrical tribute to Brazilian composer, Antonio Carlos "Tom" Jobim on "Time To Give". Backed by tenor saxist Donny McCaslin and rhythm players". - WILL SMITH - (Omaha World-Herald). "His comfort with the keyboard comes through on the solo pieces, "How Insensitive" and the closing track, "Two Preludes." With its nicely developed nursery rhyme figure, it is his most engaging composition." - DAVID DUPONT - (Jazz Cadence Magazine).
