A highly accomplished contemporary piano trio from Australia looking to establish themselves on the world stage. The trio transcend their many jazz and rock and influences to come up with a strong identity of their own.
The group consists of Sean Foran (piano),John Parker (drums) and Pat Marchisella (bass). Three albums have been released in the UK on the Naim label, “Variations” (2010), The Gentle War” (2011) and “Fact Finding Mission” (2013).
"This Australian contemporary piano trio transcend the sum of their many influences to come up with a powerful statement of their own. "
"Ian Mann admires the music of Trichotomy and the work of Stratford Jazz"
"If “Variations” established Trichotomy as one of the world's leading contemporary jazz piano trios then “The Gentle War” consolidates that position. "
"The Australian threesome have developed a sound of their own that demands they be ranked in the leading echelon of contemporary jazz piano trios."
"The music bristles with intelligence and ideas to create Trichotomy's most mature album to date."
"Pianist Sean Foran, drummer John Parker and bassist Pat Marchisella remain a fiercely interactive unit of ten years standing who can still really cut the mustard live. "
"Bright, melodic, rhythmic, intelligent and accessible, 2017 continues to find the band in rude creative health and still producing exciting and stimulating music. "
"One of the best and most exciting â€˜jazz with stringsâ€™ recordings that Iâ€™ve heard."
