“They’re outstanding for their vitality, exuberance, elegance and melodic strength, and for the joy these three fine musicians share in executing them. Atkinson is a daring and inventive acoustic guitarist and a powerful force in the new roots/jazz movement (gypsy jazz).” ~ The Toronto Star – Greg Quill
Always captivating, technically awe-inspiring and rhythmically inventive, the Marc Atkinson Trio has been gracing stages from their West Coast home to all around Europe together for over 14 years. Though primarily gypsy jazz, the trio combines a wide variety of styles into its original, elegant and highly entertaining style, led by their virtuosic multi-instrumentalist, composer and arranger leader, Marc Akinson. They’ve just released their fourth CD, The Marc Atkinson Trio IV, praised as the finest yet, and continue to push musical boundaries with their typical flawless, surprise-filled, sizzling way.
Marc Atkinson is backed by Nick Mintenko on bass and Brett Martens on rhythm guitar.
