Sam Graham Trio
The Sam Graham Trio was formed in Los Angeles in 2002. Since then, the group has performed hundreds of gigs, from the hilltops of L.A. (The Getty Center) to the basements of New York (the Jazz Lounge at CBGB's), from restaurants and bars to concerts, private parties, corporate gatherings, weddings, and numerous other events. While the group draws on an extensive repertoire of vocal and instrumental jazz standards immortalized by Frank Sinatra, Miles Davis, Nat "King" Cole, Wes Montgomery, Mose Allison, and many more, they also play original music and explore their roots in pop and rock with swinging, innovative adaptations of songs by Nirvana, Metallica, the Doors, Tom Petty, Neil Young, and many others. All in all, it adds up to a singular style: Jazz for Moderns.
