The Bend Jazz Trio consists bassist Corey Adkins, pianist Torrey Newhart and drummer Adam Carlson, who first played together at the age of 14. The trio was the rhythm section of ever-shifting configurations of young musicians in Bend, Oregon, who honed their chops playing local restaurants and at the Bend jazz club, Bebop Biscotti.
Through cosmic coincidence, all three moved to Eugene to pursue degrees in Jazz Studies at the University of Oregon, and continue to play together regularly. All are talented beyond their youth and improvise as if breathing together.
They will perform their own lively, unpredictable renditions of their favorite standards and songs, as well as a few arrangements of more modern Jazz composers such as Avishai Cohen and Dan Tepfer.
