Esteemed pianist, bandleader, and educator Andy Milne has announced the release of his new album, The reMISSION, which is set to be released on April 10, 2020, via Sunnyside Records with his new trio Unison. The trio is made up of himself, Clarence Penn (drums), and John Hebert (bass).
“In jazz,” Milne remarks, “the trio is perhaps one of the most heralded and revered configurations for pianists. Throughout most of jazz’s ongoing evolution, the piano trio has been the backbone of the rhythm section and thus represented and defined the textural palette and rhythmic heartbeat for many groups of all sizes. As a stand-alone entity, the piano trio has often been the backdrop wherein pianists establish their reputations and define their pianistic vision. For me, the decision to present who I have become as an artist in the trio setting involved a reckoning and a certain degree of artistic and technical evolution in order to both embody my past projects, and forge a new path forward.”
