Don Latarski has released a new CD of original music called D’Trio. It features Jason Palmer on drums and long time collaborator Mark Schneider on bass. This trio has been together for 20 years and it shows on this new disc. The eight songs are all instrumental and draw on the wide ranging stylings of the band members and eclectic influences that Latarski incorporates in his music. Jazz harmonies abound, but melody and groove are the glue on these tracks which includes funk, ballad, bossa, and a touch of country. The recording took place at Crescent Studio in Eugene, Oregon in August 2015. This is the first recording of the Trio which captures the live interplay between the players and the give and take is evident throughout the songs.
