Album: Live at the Academy
Release Date: October 21, 2016
The David Shaw Trio is made up of David Shaw (Vocals/ Keyboard), Marshal Herridge (Bass) and Pat Daniher (Drums). All three are top Jazz musicians from Toronto, who have won multiple awards between them.
Live at the Academy is their first album together, and the album debuted at #16 on the iTunes top 200 Jazz chart in Canada. With a mix of Jazz standards and originals, this is an album that features many styles of Jazz. In particular I enjoyed “Blues Enigma”, a poppy jazz tune which adds a more upbeat sound, and also” Green Dolphin” which evokes a great tropical island vibe that can’t be ignored.
Lovers of Jazz will surely dig this 10 track instrumental album.
