Myriad3: Vera

Read "Vera" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

Nell'affollato universo dei piano trio, i canadesi del Myriad 3 confermano il loro approccio personale fondato su calibrati equilibri musicali, in un gioco minimalista dove confluiscono elementi di rock progressivo e musica da camera.

Myriad3: Vera

Read "Vera" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Vera, the fourth album from the Toronto-based trio collective Myriad3, is a fascinating example of how fastidious design principles and shrewdly executed extemporization can truly complement and even counterpoise one another.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
