One of genre-fusing pianist and composer Adam Bodine’s most beloved and entertaining musical outfits is his jazz trio. Whether exploring its bandleader’s vibrant and eclectic original compositions or busting out clever and compelling interpretations of cover tunes, Bodine’s band is impressively flexible with an energy and repertoire that’s always fresh, fun, and thoughtful.
“Fans of Bodine return to his shows not just for his careful blend of jazz with other genres, but to see the barrier between artist and audience knocked to the ground.” — 303 Magazine
“Listening to the Adam Bodine Trio is an audio feast of amalgamated sounds including jazz, classical, soul and pop, all blended seamlessly and performed with enthusiasm. Hearing them in person is a special treat as you never know what’s coming next. The future of the jazz piano trio shines brightly under the guidance of Adam Bodine.” — Arturo Gomez (Music Director, Jazz89 KUVO)
“The Adam Bodine Trio has a sound that is new, fresh and classic all at the same time. Their music is exciting! Just when you think you know where they’re going with a melody, they take it somewhere that makes you say… “Now that is what jazz is all about!”.” — Nicole Sweeney (WBGO NYC, NY ; WCLK Atlanta)
Especially on their home front of the Mile High City, Bodine and his trio continue to elevate its craft.
