The first time I saw the Tim Ray Trio perform was as a part of Greg Abate’s quartet at Chan’s in Woonsocket, Rhode Island. They played a set as a trio before Greg came on. What I was impressed with the most was the way that they played together as a group, always listening and interacting to each other.
The trio consists of Tim Ray on Piano, John Lockwood on bass and drummer Mark Walker. Their new album, Windows is the first album that Tim has released with a traditional jazz trio since the 1990s. He also performs and records with Tre Corda a trio featuring cello and trumpet and has an album of solo piano (his second) coming soon.
