Customer Review

The Fred Hughes Trio got its start in the jazz clubs of Washington, DC. With Fred Hughes on piano, the current Trio features Bassist Amy Shook and Drummer Frank Russo. Individually, they bring over four decades of experience to the stage and a four year history as a working ensemble that includes three recordings for ShoreThing Records and performances at the Mid-Atlantic and Rehoboth Jazz Festivals as well as numerous concert series and jazz clubs throughout the Eastern United States.

Since its formation in 1989, a sampling of the group’s credentials includes the Elkhart, Rehoboth, Cape May, East Coast, Clifford Brown and Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festivals, the 1996 Summer Olympics and tours to the Republic of Korea in 2001 and 2002. The Trio has performed with such artists as Claudio Roditi, Jon Fedchock, Warren Vache and Larry Coryell and the groups recordings include: Out Of The Blue (1996), Live! (1998), No Turning Back (2001), New Day Dawning (2006), In The Mist (2012), Love Letters (2015), I’ll Be Home For Christmas (2015), Matrix (2016) and the DVD, In Concert (2002), released in the Republic of Korea.

The ensemble is Fred Hughes – piano, Amy Shook – bass, and Frank Russo - drums

The tracks are as follows:
I Got Rhythm
Now He Sings, Now He Sobs
Room 608
B Minor Waltz
In Your Own Sweet Way
Sicily
Dolphin Dance
Two Part Invention, No. 4 - Bach
Andante Cantabile - Tchaikovsky
Matrix
Waltse for Dave
Watermelon Man
Samba Song
We Will Meet Again

Filled with swinging solidarity, and the reimagined works of Johann Sebastian Bach, Dave Brubeck, Chick Corea, Bill Evans, George Gershwin, Herbie Hancock, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, The Fred Hughes trio delivers a stunning formula that will leave you humming the tunes long after the disc is done playing. Solid chemistry between the players, engages the listener to a deeper experience. Not just the standard fare, but a matrix of solid performances and fluidity of ideas. Highly Recommended.
