This tasteful trio features Barry with the great talents of Stephan Oberhoff on piano and Larry Tuttle on accoustic bass. It is a drumless trio in the style of many Bob Brookmeyer and Chet Baker settings. The sound is open , honest classic jazz. The trio has performed at major jazz clubs in Los Angeles and special events. The talent of the musicians is exceptional and the sound of jazz valve trombone unique.

Press comment. LAJAZZ review


  Jay Jackson    LAJAZZ.COM review from Colombos Jazz Room 


" Instrumental stand-out was Barry Mosley on valve trombone.  Clearly a student of valve giant Bob Brookmeyer,   Mosley's tone was soft, sweet and hypnotic, yet thick with power and drive.  This is a man who practices… long and often. "
