The October Trio

Origin: British Columbia, Canada

Genre: Jazz

The October Trio was formed in Vancouver in 2004, while its members were studying jazz at the Capilano College. With a penchant for expressive improvisations, the group quickly got noticed and released a first album, Live at Rime, in 2005, and within the same year, their first studio effort Day In. The following year, they were awarded the CBC Galaxie Rising Star and received invitations to perform at various North American jazz festivals.  In 2009, they experimented with more conceptual themes on their album Looks Like it's Going to Snow, tackling darker material rarely touched upon in contemporary jazz, such as loss and heartache. Produced by veteran Canadian bassist Brad Turner, the album quickly confirmed the young ensemble's place in today's jazz circles.
