Live Edge Trio

Live Edge jazz trio features Ben Markley on piano, Seth Lewis on bass, and Andy Wheelock on drums. Live Edge writes and arranges music that reflects and builds upon the rich history of the jazz piano trio. Each member of the trio offers a unique and distinct musical perspective, which come together as hard-swinging, harmonically rich, and infectiously groovy tunes.
