The Tom Warrington Trio CD Releases


Nelson

This music was recorded right after the trio's return from a fourth tour of beautiful New Zealand.  There may be no more inspiring surroundings for music making. Tom Warrington, Larry Koonse and Joe La Barbera are unmatched for their elegantly interactive playing, and New Zealand simply oozes enchantment, both through its breathtaking geography and its warm and receptive people.  The empathy of spirit among these three musicians is captivating, and their music will touch your soul. The CD features compositions by each member of the trio and is dedicated to Nelson, a tiny rescue kitten that showed up one day and, after nine years, disappeared, leaving only his name tag and collar behind.

Larry Koonse - guitar, Joe La Barbera - drums, Tom Warrington - bass

Back Nine

"Back Nine" is the second release by eloquent bassist Tom Warrington and again features the probing lyrical guitar of Larry Koonse and the consummate interactive drumming of Bill Evans veteran, Joe La Barbera. The trio builds on their previous venture with a fresh array of six new originals and four standards, presented in a pleasing variety of frameworks and textures. These musicians play beautifully together with a oneness of mind and purpose, and the empathy displayed on this recording should secure their place as one of the most thoughtful and provocative groups on the current scene.
