Jeff Sipe Trio
"That the power of the melody comes through matters more than anything to me," explains drummer, composer, and bandleader Jeff Sipe. His selfless dedication to the song at hand - to elevating it, enriching it, and propelling it - is why Sipe has long been considered a leading light in a vital, unique musical landscape that expands to encompass elements of jazz, rock, country, and funk.
Sipe's career has spanned more than three decades and includes membership in such influential outfits as Colonel Bruce Hampton's Aquarium Rescue Unit and, along with collaborations with Shawn Lane, Jonas Hellborg, Phil Lesh, Béla Fleck, Jeff Coffin, Warren Haynes & the Jerry Garcia Symphonic Celebration, Debashish Bhattacharya and many more.
'Jeff Sipe Trio', contains no shortage of instrumental virtuosity, but what truly distinguishes it is the band's deeply held commitment to melody, and the profound emotional dimensions it conveys.
