Jazz Edmonton, AB
A/B Trio

Chronograph Recording artists A/B trio brings together three of Alberta's most in-demand performing and recording musicians - Thom Bennett (drums and cymbals), Dan Davis (saxophone), and Josh McHan (double bass). This group is inspired by the open-sounding, chordless groups of Sonny Rollins and Joshua Redman, as well as being informed by the work of Chris Potter and Ari Hoenig. Their material ranges from inventive re-interpretations of standards to modern, original repertoire. The trio's format is fresh, and their music is at turns, fun, accessible, melodic and compelling.

The group released their second disc, Out West, in February of 2015 with special guest, Canadian jazz legend Mike Murley. The disc premiered at #1 on the national Earshot jazz charts through February and March, and was #1 overall for 2015. The disc has been on heavy rotation on CBC, CKUA, Jazz FM and across the country on campus radio. The disc also peaked at #28 on CMJ, which is extremely rare for a group on Canadian support alone and peaked at #22 on the overall Earshot chart, a category normally dominated by indie rock.

Members of the group have performed with Brad Turner, Brad Shepik, Harry Allen, PJ Perry, Mike Downes, Mike Rud, Kent Sangster and currently teach or have taught at MacEwan University, Alberta College and Keyano College. Says Tommy Banks of their first effort, Take No Prisoners: "The music is all solidly-crafted, and the playing is too. These are no up-and-comers. The performances here are by mature players with lots to say notwithstanding their relatively young ages. A very good piece of work by very good players and craftsmen."
