An innovative spin on the traditional jazz trio, featuring a rotating cast of celebrity guests—all multiple Grammy winners—including Paquito D’Rivera, Dave Samuels, and Dave Valentin.

Eight lively, virtuosic Bill O’Connell originals, plus two 20th century classics by Thelonius Monk (“‘Round Midnight”) and Kurt Weill (“Speak Low”). Monk’s signature composition has been totally re-harmonized here, and Paquito D’Rivera’s sweet-toned clarinet work is the perfect complement to O’Connell’s lush chords. Bill’s colorful career is notable for his extensive accomplishments in both Latin music and modern jazz, from serving as Mongo Santamaria’s pianist; through his long association with flutist Dave Valentin; to working with Chet Baker, Sonny Rollins, Gato Barbieri, and the fabled Fort Apache Band; followed by a stellar career as a band leader and solo artist since the 1990s.
