Collin Shook Trio - Locals Only - June 4th
The Collin Shook Trio celebrate the release of their debut album "Derivatives" with a release party Saturday, June 16th at Plush, with special guests Genevieve and the LP's and The Tryst.
The hard-driving sound of the Collin Shook Trio is a fresh departure from the Tucson jazz scene. The Trio's first album , "Derivatives", features eleven of Collin's own originals. The songs range from breakbeat, hard-bop, ballads, to extreme high energy passages. On the album is their 3-piece "#Occupy Suite", an ode to the movement and it's principles. "Derivatives", the title track is a commentary on Wall Street, and "Poca Cosa, the little one" is a burning latin tune composed for the Davila Sisters and their awesome, authentic Mexican restaurant in the heart of Tucson.
The album contains their signature sound: the classic Hard Bop from the 1960's, fused with a modern and classically influenced vocabulary and sensibility. Dylan DeRobertis on bass, and Matt Pirc completes the ensemble.
