Following the success of “Groove du Jour”, crowned best album of the year 2019 by the French Academie du Jazz, Yes! Trio makes its return by releasing its third album “Spring Sings”. Bringing together drummer Ali Jackson, whose personal lineage is rooted in an African American family of jazz players from Detroit, spotted by Wynton Marsalis in his teen years; pianist Aaron Goldberg, the son of eminent Boston scientists who graduated from Harvard University; and double bassist Omer Avital, an Israeli musician with Yemenite and Moroccan roots expatriated to New York for his love of bebop, Yes! Trio brings together three musicians who were never expected to meet! United by thirty years of friendship and love of swing, enriched by their differences and their individual experiences, these three contemporary masters, solo leaders in their own right, are bond by a true group spirit which encourages interaction in music at its maximum intensity and subtlety. Convinced that swing is a timeless idea, Yes! Trio continues to embrace jazz with the same happiness, faithful to what makes up its essence, from Ahmad Jamal to Motown to Yemen Blues. Combining two brilliantly revisited standards with a series of sublime original compositions, “Spring Sings” is a pure gem that confirms the unique character of Yes! Trio on the jazz planet.
