Trio Subtonic, Blue Cranes

BRETT CAMPBELL
8 pm., Friday October 04 | $12.
Jimmy Mak's
221 NW 10th Ave.
 
[GROOVE] On their enticing new album, Night Runners, pianist Galen Clark, bassist Bill Athens and drummer Jesse Brooke trade some—but not all—of the danceable, Meters-influenced funk that fueled the Portland trio’s earlier efforts. They edge toward more relaxed, straightforward, yet somewhat darker acoustic instrumental balladry that owes as much to rock and pop (including a Nick Drake cover) as jazz. It should win fans of all three genres, much like other pop-influenced keyboard trios like the Bad Plus and Medeski, Martin and Wood, though TS doesn’t really sound like either. But giving up some funk doesn’t mean surrendering the grabby groove that has long made Trio Subtonic one of Portland’s most enjoyable young jazz combos. This show with another of the city’s most popular-beyond-jazzheads groups, Blue Cranes, and guests should be one of the liveliest of the season.
