THE STEVE MARLEY TRIO — Unique Jazz
The Steve Marley Trio are like-minded musicians who were searching for something more substantial than playing casual gigs with interchangeable lineups. They wanted to develop their own repertoire and unique sonic palette and in the process create music which offer audiences something identifiable and distinctive. With a song list that includes fresh takes on old standards, and a sprinkling of original compositions, the trio continues to explore the synergistic possibilities and subtle nuances of trio jazz.
