PLS.trio

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. Tapping musical sophistication and tech savvy to lead their artistic toolkit, the group's focus on melody carries the listener along on a journey drawn from experiences of blazing through city streets and car horns of the trio’s native New York, all the way to landscapes reminiscent of sunny, mid-western countryside fields. 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
