TRI-FI is back with our third release aptly titled “3.” Since 2003, we have been developing what reviews describe as an unmistakable sound – contemporary, full of vibrant swing and deeply rooted in the tradition of the classic piano trio.

Recorded in NYC (with the help of a few hundred of our closest friends) this new album is made up of entirely original compositions, and recorded with obsessive attention to sound quality. We think it’s our best outing to date and we hope you enjoy it! Give it a listen.

Purchase CDs right on the TRI-FI website, or download the music as CD quality Apple Lossless files (playable on all iPods – and easily converted to other lossless or compressed formats). You won’t find sound quality like this in the iTunes music store!

Matthew Fries – piano
Phil Palombi – bass
Keith Hall – drums
