The Kristian Braathen Trio came together in 2005 with the purpose of forming a jazz trio that would play a range of music influenced by some of musicians with whom Kristian draws inspiration. Such artists include, Ray Brown Trio, Bill Charlap Trio and Jacky Terrasson. Miles Black (piano) and Jodi Proznick (acoustic bass) are two of Canada’s finest jazz musicians, and Kristian is thrilled to have them as part of his trio. The sound of the Kristian Braathen Trio is based around great feel, new compositions and interesting arrangements of jazz standards and popular songs. Kristian Braathen Trio recently released their most current album entitled ‘Tempus Fugit’, available on Itunes and CDBaby.
