PLS.trio - pianist Pier Luigi Salami, bassist Martin D Fowler, and drummer Shawn Crowder - lies somewhere in between Northern European jazz and American contemporary jazz, bringing forth a highly energetic and deeply melodious mixture of modern jazz and electronic elements.

The trio released their second album, Cosmonauts, in January 2021 on DotTime Records, after previously completing a world tour in support of their debut album “East River”, released in February 2015 and acclaimed by press and critics

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
