The Wee Trio

The Wee Trio is a collaborative musical exploration consisting of vibraphonist James Westfall, bassist Dan Loomis, and drummer Jared Schonig. In what started as a regular collective of Brooklyn musicians who got together to jam, chemistry quickly formed and thus was born The Wee Trio. The band kicked off their inaugural tour performing throughout New York and Pennsylvania playing at a few clubs, a Jazz Festival, and an Artist Residency at a local University. The band reconvened back in Brooklyn to record and document the trio. The documented recording entitled Capital Diner Vol. 1 features original compositions by the trio with a few standards composed by Kurt Cobain, Sufjan Stevens, and Thelonious Monk

Musician

Dan Loomis

With more than a decade of performing experience since moving to New York City in 2007, Dan Loomis has emerged as a daring leader, a sought-after sideman, and a composer whose view of the world – and willingness to explore his own inner questioning – has led to the creation of innovative and moving works. Loomis has produced nearly a dozen recordings with the Dan Loomis Quartet and with bands he co- leads, including the collectives SPOKE and The Wee Trio. The latter two bands have released critically acclaimed albums in recent years, including SPOKE’s (r)anthems in 2014, and The Wee Trio’s concert recording Wee+3 in 2017

The Wee Trio: Full of Surprises

Read "The Wee Trio: Full of Surprises" reviewed by Geno Thackara


Don't be fooled by the name. The members of the Wee Trio are normal-looking and normal-sized guys, their ambition if anything is deluxe, and their compositional scope virtually limitless. While such a moniker can only keep them humble--not that they'd seem to need the help--they've always kept an outsized willingness to follow fascinating ideas and embrace ...

The Wee Trio: Wee +3

Read "Wee +3" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky


The Wee Trio delivered quite a bit of variety over the course of its first four albums. The first two--Capitol Diner, Vol. I (Bionic Records, 2008) and Capitol Diner, Vol. II: Animal Style (Bionic Records, 2010)--established the musical ground and syntax that are part and parcel of this three-way partnership; Ashes To Ashes: A David Bowie ...

The Wee Trio: Live at the Bistro

Read "Live at the Bistro" reviewed by Luigi Sforza


La bella copertina dell'ultimo CD del Wee Trio--in puro stile fumettistico pop art, alla Roy Lichtenstein, comprensivo di onomatopee--rappresenta i tre musicisti nell'atto di suonare. La musica poi è un'esperienza dinamica sfaccettata, in sintonia con le possibili declinazioni di una società in continuo movimento. L'accostamento tra pop art e Live at the Bistro -disco ...
