Anthony Taddeo & TMT +2

FREE and open to the public
Brooklyn/Cleveland-based jazz group TMT Trio+2 features Juno Award winner Cat Toren on piano, Angela Morris on tenor saxophone, and Anthony Taddeo on drums. Uniquely sans bass, TMT showcases the multifaceted chamber music character of the piano by drawing from modern jazz, new music and avant-rock. Their repertoire features original compositions, collective improvisations and re-imaginings of standards by the three band members. After five years as a band, the trio released their debut album, Star Ballad, in 2017. TMT has toured the U.S. extensively, and most recently performed a two-hour composition in the Akron Art Gallery as part of the exhibit Jerry Birchfield: Asleep in the Dust. TMT Trio is proud to have worked as educators in various youth jazz programs including the Boys and Girls Clubs of Cleveland, Cuyahoga Community College and SOTA Arts.
Joining TMT Trio for this performance are Ohio natives Chris Coles on alto saxophone and Sam Blakeslee on trombone. Both musicians have worked closely with the trio, and Sam (who now resides in New York) is featured on their album Star Ballad. These five instrumentalists are equally accomplished composers, and this concert will include the premiere of new works written especially for the occasion.
