ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
TRI-FI is a jazz piano trio with "a sound everybody can root for" – playing original compositions in a fun and personal style that at times pushes modern jazz expectations, and at others swings in the tradition of the classic jazz piano trios. In reviews TRI-FI has been praised for "the perpetual forward thrust of the music…and their flawless intercommunication" by All About Jazz, and described as infusing "creative writing, fresh arranging and complimentary playing to offer us music that has to be reckoned with" by JazzReview.com. All Music Guide says, "TRI-FI is well on their way to incorporating new style and strength to their already potent brand of piano trio music."

A TRI-FI Christmas is a collection of twelve familiar Christmas classics done up in their unmistakable TRI-FI way. "Even though we recorded it in the middle of summer, we had a lot of fun making this album," the band shared. "We wore Santa hats. We drank eggnog. We took requests. And we hope you’ll enjoy it just as much as we enjoyed recording it."

Mr. Bill

What? ANOTHER Christmas record??
I've fallen for this before. A favorite jazz artist will release a Christmas record, and I'll buy it. Then it turns out to be an over-produced maudlin re-hash, and of all things, I'll hear it on the speakers at Wal-Mart, before the "holiday season" is over.
BUT (and this is huge) the Tri Fi Christmas album has completely won me over. Right out of the box the arrangement of "Frosty the Snowman" knocked me out. Gee, a genuine jazz arrangement. Just go through the samples, and you'll see what I mean. I am partial to particular tunes: Joy To e World, with a 2d line groove -- what could be more joyful than that? Or a funky What Child Is This? And a suitably mysterious We Three Kings...
The best part about his recording is that when the house fills up with assorted relatives who want to hear some "Christmas Music," you can put this on and then sit near the speakers so you can hear the music well, and smile and nod at everyone while in your own little world. But you'll get caught... you won't be able to sit still when this music's happenin'.
If I hear this over the speakers at Wal-Mart, I'll fall over. Because Wal-Mart will have become magically tragically hip. This is a Christmas album that is really really a jazz record. Five stars -- too bad there's not six!
