Jacobson, York, and Schaub are masters of sound, touch and feel. This outing showcases them in a drumless trio format which allows for all three of their gorgeous sounds to be heard with clarity. It's a swinging record that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Affinity Trio consists of Eric Jacoboson on trumpet, Clay Schaub on bass, and Pamela York on piano. Individually, they have worked with some of the biggest names in the jazz world: Benny Golson, Phil Woods, Jeff Hamilton, John Clayton, Bruce Barth, Brian Lynch, Greg Tardy, Frank Morgan, and more. The trio has held a regular Monday night residency at the Mason Street Grill in Milwaukee, Wisconsin since 2021. Performing without a drummer, Affinity Trio creates an intimate ambience with a strong rhythmic groove. Their repertoire includes standards from the Great American Songbook, original music, and bebop.
"... Jacobson's buttery tone speaks and haunts...Like Roy Hargrove and Tom Harrell, Jacobson is a 'toucher' and not 'pusher' of unnecessary technique or pre-planned patterns." All About Jazz
"...like Lester Young, Bill Evans, and other of the more lyrical players, Pamela York plays each melody with a singer's grace and vibrancy." L.A. Jazz Scene
