About the Musicians
Driving the melodies is keyboardist Tom Pletscher, a Minnesota native that has been involved with the Twin Cities jazz scene for over 30 years. He’s a recognized educator, and composer, and is a faculty member of the MacPhail Center for Music in Minneapolis, MN.
Drums, percussion, and other erstwhile rhythmic offerings are provided by Joe Steinger. He provides his percussive services to a number of local, well known area groups, (including Café Accordion Orchestra) and his liquid rhythmic style add a signature to every performance.
Terry Bailey lays down a solid foundation for the trio on bass. His easy style, acquired from many years of playing experience with numerous groups and venues, locks down the grooves. Whether the tune is a jazz standard, bossa, a blues tune or swing; pop, rock, Latin or other genre, it’s all done with verve and class.
