‘Chetrio: The Music of Chet Baker'

The Arnie SOMOGYI Trio: 'Featuring leading trumpeter Neil Yates and multiple British Jazz Award-winning pianist Dave Newton, Chetrio celebrates the legacy of the great Chet Baker - the songs he sang so bitter-sweetly and his ever melodic interpretations of the jazz standard repertoire. Yates' singing reflects Baker's lyrical and plaintive style without being a pure imitation. Chetrio seeks to crystallise something of Chet's influence in a respectful homage. In his later years Chet chose to work without drums, preferring the more intimate trio setting. Once, when he was recommended a drummer by a friend, he famously said, "He'd have to be a truly amazing drummer to be better than no drummer at all!"

The repertoire features songs that Chet made his own, tunes he brought to life again and again, and a few "what if" conjectures, wondering how Chet might have approached the music of today had he not met his infamous fateful end in Amsterdam.’

Neil Yates: trumpet, flugelhorn & voice...
Dave Newton: piano
Arnie SOMOGYI: bass

Arnie began playing double bass at the age of 19 and has been on the British jazz scene ever since. Expect a blend of British and Hungarian jazz.
