The Floris Kappeyne Trio was set up in 2015 by the pianist. In the past two years, the trio consisting of separate Prinses Christina Concours winners (2012) has made audiences smile with their witty arrangements of old jazz standards. Next to winning the Prinses Christina Concours they are winners of the Gigstarter Talent Award 2016. This prize is part of the of the yearly Red Light District Jazz festival, Amsterdam
During the last year, the trio has worked on achieving an authentic conception by combining the classic sound of the McCoy Tyner trio from the sixties with Senegalese sabar rhythms and abstract ideas from modern classical music. The result is presented on this debut-album consisting solely of original compositions.
