JJ Wright Trio

When: Tue., Aug. 19, 7 p.m. 2014

Composer JJ Wright brings a unique sound to the jazz soundscape. Wright’s draws from many different musical idioms. The JJ Wright Trio’s upcoming release Inward Looking Outward is anything but standard jazz fare. Among Wright’s own compositions are tunes from the likes of Phil Collins, Jon Brion and Sufjan Stevens. The freshly available track “The Transfiguration” has the sweetness of Appalachian sacred music that evolves into a melancholy rock tune that hints at Latin jazz. “JTC II” is a rich and dark tune that rolls around in the low end, maintaining a high energy with hip-hop percussion. The album drops today, so come to the show and pick one up. (Gonzalez)
