Refraction Trio – As we were

From the Media Release

refractionMelbourne-based jazz piano trio Refraction have released their debut album As We Were in March 2015 on independent label Rare Colour Records. The trio is led by drummer Chris Broomhead and the recording also features pianist Brenton Foster (Max Savage, independent) and bassist Marty Holoubek (Paul Grabowski, Sex On Toast), both of whom are originally from Adelaide and who are now performing and recording in Melbourne. This debut album sees the culmination of a preceding year-and-a-half period of playing and performing together, honing their unique and interactive style. The recording features Chris’s compositions, a composition of Brenton’s and a cover of the Frou Frou (Imogen Heap) tune Let Go off their 2002 album Details. Chris’s compositions were formed over an extensive period covering some 10-plus years and have been influenced by such artists as Tord Gustavsen (particularly his work on his trio recordings) and Marcin Wasilewski, with other influences including Robert Glasper and Weather Report. Described by Leon Gettler as “dreamy” (JAIR FM), As We Were is a compositional journey, moving from the liquid, yet grooving opener A Rare Colour, through to the anthem-like closing piece Winter House, and is available on iTunes, BandCamp, CD Baby and on

 Refraction will launch As we were with a performance at the Paris Cat Jazz Club, on Thursday 15 October.
