Drummer/composer Matt Slocum leads a NYC-based trio with longtime creative associate Dayna Stephens (Kenny Barron, Tom Harrell) and inventive guitarist Steve Cardenas (Charlie Haden, Paul Motian, Joey Baron). The ensemble will be celebrating the release of their recording Trio Pacific Vol. 1.
"Slocum's writing and playing emphasize a breathing, expressive, virtually speech-like flow of shifting meters... The young drummer constantly surprises, embracing the kit as a reactive and explorative multi-percussion whole. A fresh voice."
