Columbus-based jazz guitarist & composer returns to the Rubber City (home of his alma mater, The University of Akron) for a special show at BLU! Featuring Alex Schrock, Kevin Martinez, Anthony Taddeo.
The Alex Schrock Trio could be described as a modern jazz outfit, but the influences are much more diverse, including Nujabes, Flying Lotus, Animals As Leaders, Leo Brouwer to Radiohead (and the list goes on). These influences are put in a musical environment where free flowing improvisation meets careful composition.
The trio’s latest album, Punk Jazz, “showcases Schrock’s skilled compositions and adept guitar-work leading a tight, well-honed trio that plays as a cohesive unit. This album is recommended for fans of both classic and modern jazz guitar trios, as well as anyone who can appreciate subtle tunes that expand with each listen…” -Jazz Columbus
