This self-titled release is the 1st album with my collaborative project – Matthew Fries (piano), Phil Palombi (bass) & Keith Hall (drums). We began playing together as the rhythm section for Curtis Stigers (vocals), so we asked him to be our special guest on this release.

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

Curtis Stigers– vocals

Available as CD and Digital Download on the Tri-Fi Website




This is our first recording with our collaborative trio. After playing together for a few years as the touring band with Curtis Stigers we decided to create this album of our own music. It’s an experiment that we think turned out even better than we hoped. We even had Curtis come and sing a tune with us – the one standard on the CD.

This album is dedicated to the memory of the great pianist, James Williams.
