“Evgeny Lebedev’s World Trio” is a collaboration of three musicians from different corners of the world, with absolutely different cultural and musical backgrounds.
Every participant absorbed musical traditions of his own culture and added them to the sound of the band, using jazz idioms, while not regarding themselves as a straight-ahead jazz ensemble. The band’s repertoire is based on the music composed by pianist Evgeny Lebedev, whose musical background consists of European classical traditions, middle-eastern folk music and Jazz. Evgeny has performed and recorded with artists Marcus Miller, David Sanchez, Jack DeJohnette, Terri Lyne Carrington, Dave Fiuczynski, Joe Lovano and others.
The World Trio plays jazz within a folk-oriented frame while relying heavily on the freedom of improvisation. Raised in different countries, the band members have been influenced by a variety of lifestyles, cultures, and musical genres. With a bass player from Israel, the Drummer from the U.S. and a Russian pianist, the group celebrates the distinctions which create their unique and innovative sound.
