The Andrew Read Trio

Charles Mingus once said “Making the simple complicated is commonplace; making the complicated simple, that’s creativity”. This tends to describe our philosophy for this album. The majority of the original compositions on this album are based on the chord changes from well known works taken from the classical repertoire. One thing I can assure you is that this album is nothing like the old “Bach meets Jazz” idea. For these pieces we applied the same concept used by jazz musicians during the Be Bop era where new melodies were applied to existing chord progressions. The major difference is that instead of sourcing our chord changes from songs out of the American songbook tradition we opted to explore the European classical music tradition for our harmony. During the preparation for this recording we had a great time playing with the endless possibilities provided us by the old masters and enjoyed looking for simple ways to transpose these rich harmonies into the language of jazz.

The Andrew Read Trio

The Andrew Read trio was formed in 1996 and comprises pianist Hans Kwakkernaat, drummer Erik Poorterman and bassist Andrew Read. Inspired by the great piano trios throughout history jazz, the trio's style is rooted firmly in the American jazz tradition however European, and Latin influences are never too far away. The trio’s repertoire consists of original compositions augmented with material drawn from the standard jazz repertoire. 

The Andrew Read Trio performs regularly not only in trio formation but also as rhythm section for the historical big band project “The original swing” and other well known prominent jazz artists. Due to years of regular performances the trio has achieved a level of musical interplay where each piece appears to be more of a three way conversation rather than a soloist with accompaniment.
