One of Portland, Oregon’s best known jazz group is Trio Subtonic. They’ve made their mark on the Northwest independent and jazz music scenes, crafting three albums worth of original compositions by the band members: on keys, Galen Clark; on bass, Bill Athens; and on drums, Russ Kleimer.
On a quick zoom through Seattle (they were in town for a one-nighter), the Trio kindly made time to visit the KPLU studios for a performance/interview with host Abe Beeson. Check out their original blend of jazz, Brazilian and funk.
