The Wee Trio

Roughly one year ago, guitarist Cliff Hines brought together a cadre of New Orleans' finest musicians and what followed was the recording of Ashes To Ashes – A David Bowie Intraspective.

While rooted in jazz, The Wee Trio finds ways to break boundaries encompassing their other roots in rock and fusion. Each member is a leader in their own right, but together as The Wee Trio represents the highly creative groups pushing jazz and improvised music in exciting and innovative directions.

Gerald French

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - 6:00pm

New Orleans drummer Gerald French joined me onstage at the 2013 Ascona Jazz Festival to discuss his passion for the music of his hometown and his feelings about carrying on the tradition of jazz. I also talked him into a few tunes with his band.

Manner Effect

When deeply invested musicians truly give themselves over to a band, the group inevitably becomes greater than the sum of its parts. Manner Effect fuses five voices from vastly different backgrounds into a startlingly original musical experience. The group's sound doesn't conform to any of the traditional generic labels.

Despite the wide-ranging scope of their repertoire, it consistently retains a signature, recognizable, and distinctive sound. The band's personality, the strength of the musicianship, and the tightness of their groove, is always the dominant force.
