Songs trio have made two very popular recordings with the original line up of Dorian Ford (piano), Max de Wardener (bass), Iian Pattinson (drums) Playing 'songs' rather than 'standards' but as a jazz piano trio. The trio try to find the inner life inside the melody and structure of a classic song.
Mostly the songs have their roots in the tradition of the American folk-song (blues, country and gospel as its antecedents) and often written in the 60's and 70's (Joni Mitchell, Steely Dan, Jimmy Web, Bob Dylan etc.).
The trio is dedicated to finding the sacred in the secular.
