High Falls, NY   See Map
It's been SIX (6!) years since the release of our first CD -- "Love... and Other Storms" -- and you're invited to help us celebrate "Rise Up / Stand Up", a double album of the band's latest material.

Many different and varied influences come to play in Fran Palmieri's songwriting, and the band continues to impress with the tight harmonies and soaring guitar solos that Trio Mio's audience has come to expect in their live shows. This 23-song album features some of Fran's finest work, with story lines covering everything from contemporary politics (DC People), to the age-old struggles of the oppressed classes (God Bless the Working Man, Rise Up), from Voltaire (Turn Out Delight is a modern take on Candide) to Groucho Marx (Seasons). There are light-hearted moments (Please Don't Leave Me, The Last Time), and dark story-songs (Come Away, Another Lonely Boy in Paradise), but the band navigates these widely diverse themes with grace and grit.

Hope to see you there!

Jeremy Baum Trio: Charlie "Baum" Christmas, Sue Williams / Acoustic Bass, Peter O'Brien / DrumsThe FALCON
1348 Route 9W
Marlboro, NY   See Map
A tribute to Vince Guaraldi's 1965 studio album, "A Charlie Brown Christmas" - considered one of the most beloved holiday albums recorded. The soundtrack introduced jazz with grace, charm, and creativity, to an entirely new generation, having been heard by more individuals than the work of the genre's most influential players, and influenced dozens of young aspiring musicians.

Guaraldi showed how a piano, bass and drums capture a feeling and character in living color, particularly if those feelings are complex, conflicted or even simply too beautiful for words .....opening doors for later discoveries in Bill Evans, Thelonious Monk, Robert Glasper....to say nothing of all the other sounds and ensembles waiting to be heard with jazz at its pulse. - LA Times

Falcon favorite Jeremy Baum plays the Hammond Organ, piano. Look out for his album "The Eel", featuring funky, bluesy compositions as well as original arrangements of songs.
