Daniel Kelly’s Emerge Trio  - (Piano, Bass, Drums)

Daniel Kelly’s Emerge Trio takes its name from their debut CD, Emerge, released on Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records. This jazz trio (piano-bass-drums) is infused with the energy of rock music, yet also incorporates Daniel’s background in classical music, creating a fresh new sound that pushes the boundaries of jazz in a fun, compelling and welcoming way for the listener.

Always surprising...Kelly isn’t content with following one point on the compass - his music goes in whatever direction his muse takes him, and every trip is quite eventful and eminently worthwile.
