The release date has been set for my new solo piano project. Parallel States will be available on CD and digital download on June 3, 2016. Look for limited edition vinyl and limited edition prints (cover art painting) coming later this summer.
You can preview the music and the artwork right here on my site. Enjoy!
My sister, Loryn Spangler-Jones (visual artist) and I have been collaborating on a new work of art and music. It’s been an exciting process of blurring the lines between visual and aural – where art is created to inspire musical composition and music is composed to inspire a visual image.
Join us for Parallel States – an exhibition showcasing the art that was created combined with a live performance of the music.
Here’s a sample of the work we’re creating. This is an example of a solo piano piece I created inspired by Loryn’s art.
Her piece “Time to Make the Doughnuts” (shown on the left) inspired my composition, “The Sweet Life.”
(Sorry, I just couldn’t bring myself to title my piece “Time to Make the Doughnuts”)

John Ephland at Downbeat gave TRI-FI’s new album Staring into the Sun a very nice 4-star review in the April 2014 issue!
“Tri-Fi’s newest collection of originals is the best example yet of their intimate group interplay… Call it a relaxed yet fervent approach to express joy, wonder, surprise. The kind of qualities jazz lovers look for anytime they’re hungry for connection”
