Tis the Season!

OK. Maybe I’m rushing it just a bit since it’s not quite Thanksgiving, but you really should start thinking about what music you plan to play for your family and friends this holiday season. I’ve got an excellent recommendation! Me!

I released A TRI-FI Christmas last year with my trio, TRI-FI – just in time for the holidays. This album is a collection of holiday classics done up in a creative, modern jazz trio way. You can listen right here on my site.

Available on the TRI-Fi website as CD, digital download or even HD audio!

Note: The digital downloads on are CD quality – so much better than what you’ll find on iTunes.

Heading to Denmark with TRI-FI

I’m off to Denmark next weekend with my trio, TRI-FI. We’ve been invited to perform at the European Double-Bass Convention. In addition to our performance at the festival we will be playing a few other fun shows while we’re there:

  • Jazz Club Dexter in Odense (Thurs 16 Aug)
  • A couple after-hours concerts at Jazz House in Copenhagen (Fri/Sat 17-18 Aug)
  • Master-class for Jazz Denmark (Sat 18 Aug)

I’m very excited to be heading to Europe with this trio for the first time! And I’m looking forward to sharing our original music with a few new audiences.

My Favorite Quote from a Review Ever

“Stigers’s backing musicians looked like a convention of accountants, but they delivered a blues and mainstream-swing accompaniment with engaging zest…”

Look! It’s A Tri-Fi Christmas!

Last summer I got together with my TRI-FI bandmates, Keith Hall and Phil Palombi, and we thought, “Wow, this hot weather makes me wish it was Christmas. We should record a Christmas album!” And that’s exactly what we did.

So, we set up a Kickstarter Fundraising Drive (check out the goofy video we made) and about 120 amazing people agreed that it was a good idea – they jumped in, pre-ordered the album for themselves and their friends, and the next thing you know we were able to pay for the recording and production process. We had a blast recording the 12 holiday classics and I hope you’ll take a moment to check it out.
