The Straight Ahead Trio
The musical engine for the ground breaking jazz group Straight Ahead, the Straight Ahead Trio is a group of strong, inventive instrumentalists and vocalists, renown as powerful and imaginative composers and arrangers.
With 5 recordings to its credit, Straight Ahead has established itself as one of jazz’s most enduring and prolific groups. These Grammy-nominated and Downbeat Award winning artists have shared a bill with performers such as Ray Charles, Tony Bennett, Roy Ayers, Max Roach, Alex Bugnon, George Duke and KEM. They have toured extensively in the United States, Australia, the Caribbean and Europe garnering rave reviews.
Straight Ahead's founding members, the “Rhythm Sisters”- Pianist Alina Morr, Bassist Marion Hayden and Drummer Gayelynn McKinney are the Straight Ahead Trio. Each member of the trio brings a different and complimentary color to the music. The rich jazz bass traditions of Hayden, the fiery Latin and Blues piano of Morr and the poly-rhythms of McKinney’s drums are the intersection of vibe and jazz.
Energy, Wisdom, Power and Magic--The Straight Ahead Trio!
