Three who instinctively interplay together. Saxophonist, Eric Person, Bassist, Joseph Lepore and Drummer, Shinnisuke Takahashi came together in 2010 while playing informal jams at Joe’s home in Queens, New York. "We struck a different feeling from the very start" says Eric Person. The feelings they convey are within a wide spectrum where the listener can expect the unexpectant. From the softest soft to the jagged edge, the three members honor a commitment to keep it moving forward.
TrioKinesis plays with an uncommon unity and with a full expressive sound as if they are four or five musicians. A listener will not miss a piano or guitar. Their interchange is paramount and they play a wide spectrum of expressions, textures, linear devices, and colorations. They seek to go beyond the common "worn out treads" that line so much of today's music. The group respects the roots that were laid down by the masters of the art while finding their own unique pulse that reflects the modern times we live in.
