REVIEW: Trio Subtonic @ Lewis & Clark College (Portland, OR – – 10/9/08)

Quick review… I didn’t make it to Jo Fed’s in Eugene a few weeks ago to see Portland jazz group, Trio SubtonicAlas, they were playing in Portland last night, and I was in town for work.

(camera phones are kinda pointless)

Trio Subtonic are a piano/bass/drums jazz trio… in the same vein as Medeski Martin & Wood (to give you a frame of reference).  What I’ve heard on record is really groove oriented jazz with keys, samples, etc.  Last night was more organic, acoustic jazz (i.e.- still a nice groove, but with acoustic piano).  They were recording the show at Lewis & Clark College for a future release.  I stayed through the first break (about an hour), and of the songs that they announced, I caught: Not There, Subtronics, Why Are the Mountains Crying, and Kaleidoscoping.  They played three or four others of which I didn’t catch the names.

Catch them if you’re in Portland or if they swing through your town… they were quite enjoyable.  Check out their music below:
