Try the Veal (Solidtone Recordings)

TRi/O is a collaborative groove-based contemporary jazz & funk outing from three like-minded New York musicians: Steve Shapiro on vibraphone and mallet keyboards, virtuoso 5-string bassist Dave Anderson, and drummer Tyger MacNeal. A unique concept and original repertoire sets the group apart in the genres of jazz, percussion, and electronic music – especially through experimentation with customized live-loops and the electronic mallet controller, allowing the band to explore progressive new territory. TRi/O’s latest album “Try The Veal” documents the power of groove, communication, and interaction from three musicians having a blast creating their own joyful musical story.
