Known for their expressive fluidity and modal orientation, The George Crotty Trio makes music that is cinematic, collaborative, and conversational. The global-jazz outfit draws on influences within Indian raga, Arabic maqam, and modal jazz; using the language of other cultures to speak new things. “I’m not at home in any one culture,” muses Crotty, “so the trio became my home.”
Powered by drummer Dhaivat Jani and bassist Jonathan Chapman the trio’s sound deviates from a typical hierarchy. The three players intertwine on their own spontaneous terms in an exploration of groove and colour, lending Crotty's tunes an exciting three-dimensional quality.
Majd Sekkar is a Syrian-Canadian clarinetist, distinguished in the Toronto music scene for his unique sound. His style blends Middle Eastern folk and classical music with Jazz music in unparalleled practice.
George Crotty has forged his own exciting vocabulary on the cello, pushing its boundaries as a jazz instrument. He has performed at Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Koerner Hall, Savannah Music Festival, Globalfest, Newport Folk Festival, the Vancouver Jazz Festival, and the New Directions Cello Festival. He has toured internationally playing Bogotá, São Paulo, Copenhagen, London, Berlin, and Paris. Crotty toured North America with 10-time Tony-winning Broadway musical, “The Band’s Visit,” and played on the video game soundtrack for “Assassin’s Creek Mirage.”
