Manuel Valera’s Trio is comprised of three prominent like-minded musicians residing in New York: Pianist Manuel Valera, bassist Hans Glawischnig and drummer EJ Strickland. This project is is a refreshing take on the trio format. The music performed by the trio is deeply informed by trios of the past. It also has forward thinking view on where the trio setting is going. The repertoire of the trio
is composed and arranged by Valera. The music is a mixture of straight ahead jazz with a hint of Cuban music as well as the occasional interpretations of jazz standards.
