Known for their expressive fluidity and modal orientation, The George Crotty

Trio engages in cross-cultural interplay with post-bop, modal jazz, South American grooves, Indian Raga, and Arabic Maqam, all while pushing the boundaries of the cello as a jazz instrument, on which bandleader George Crotty has forged his own exciting vocabulary.

Following his graduation from the Berklee College of Music, Crotty immersed himself in New York’s jazz and world music scenes, playing with several ensembles, such as the Brooklyn Raga Massive, and the Detroit-based National Arab Orchestra. Additionally, he has enjoyed fruitful collaborations with Simon Shaheen, Paquito D’Rivera, Anat Cohen, and Darol Anger.

Powered by drummer Matias Recharte (Kuné, Jesse Cook) and bassist Jonathan Chapman (Travis Knights, Laura Anglade) The George Crotty Trio’s sound deviates from a trio's typical hierarchy. The three players intertwine on their own spontaneous terms in an exploration of groove and colour, lending Crotty's tunes an exciting three-dimensional quality.
