The Chris Cummings Standards Trio is a jazz trio led by drummer, Chris Cummings, that performs modern interpretations of jazz standards from every era. Very much a modern band, the trio is dedicated to honoring the jazz canon without living in the past. Each performance of each piece is an exploration of the moment with stylings that could be compared to Jarrett, Evans, Corea, or Bley.
