The Wee Trio is busy getting a brand new album ready for you. This February we recorded two unforgettable nights of music in St. Louis. This September we will release it on the album, Live at The Bistro. Take a sneak peak at the incredible cover art from our friend, Charles Michelet!
|It has been a while since The Wee Trio has been in touch with you, our dear fans. But we have been busy on and behind the scenes and there is a lot coming up. Here’s the scoop!
WEST COAST TOUR
The Trio ventures onto foreign soil for the first time this winter. We are excited to play at the Ottawa Jazz Festival on February 3rd. Stay tuned for additional dates in Toronto, Montreal and Quebec City.
I saw some of my earliest jazz concerts (this is Dan, wee bassist extraordinaire) at Jazz at The Bistro, the great club in my hometown of St. Louis. I got to see Ray Brown for the first time there along with a whole lot of other jazz greats. So it means a lot to me to return to the Bistro for our third time this February and record a live album! We have been workshopping and rehearsing new music for the record here in LA…. and things are sounding really exciting!

Stay tuned for more details… but you can see some of our tour dates on our calendar below.
Recently, the band had the pleasure of being Artists-in-Residence at the Butler Summer Jazz Camp this July. One highlight of being
part of this week for us was having the chance to premier a new series of works that the group composed for Butler’s renowned percussion studio. Videos from this performances are coming … also look out for some performances at universities around the country (hopefully near you, of course).
