The New Conrad Miller Trio

Con Alma is the title of the new, and already 3rd album of The New Conrad Miller Trio. It will be released worldwide the 24th of January 2020 on CD and Vinyl, through German record label Mochermusic.

The title refers to a piece of Dizzy Gillespie on his (released in 1954) LP 'AFRO'. It were the early days of Latin Jazz, with jazzy harmonies flavored with South American rhythms. One of the most recognizable trademarks of The New Conrad Miller Trio.  
But the most important reason to name their new album 'Con Alma' is the long enduring friendship among the members of the trio, in ‘Music & Soul’.

Early 2018 pianist Coen Molenaar released the CD and LP "Sounding Silence '. Together with Enrique Firpi (drums) and David de Marez Oyens (double-bass) they are ' The New Conrad Miller Trio'.  

The album has been received very well internationally which resulted in nice concerts throughout Germany, Poland and Benelux.

„Vigorously swinging… Here jazz gets ventilated!“ (Jochen Siemens in STERN 3/2018, 4/5 stars)

"Molenaar’s touch on the keys,always leaves space for the elegant bass lines and the dancing cymbals of his companions.

But finally it’s the latin tinted showpieces such as "Bossa Del Calvito“ or „No Dancing“ (the song name is a good joke) that distinguish the band from the masses of piano trios."
(Rolf Thomas in JAZZTHING February/March 2018)

„High-torque and self-confident, but never over-produced and equipped with tremendous jazz grip - a blessing“ (Gregor Poschoreck on SOULTRAINONLINE, 4/5 stars)

„A very vivid mix of styles - inspiring and pretty relaxing jazz“ (Christian Kautz on LIKEHIFI, 4/5 stars)
