Fred Hughes is a consummate pianist that is joined by two equally adept instrumentalist bassist, Amy Shook and drummer, Frank Russo. Together they form the Fred Hughes Trio. The trios holiday album I’ll Be Home For Christmas, is a classic album in the making. We have found Hughes release to be a “go to” holiday release, we have used it on Episodes #146, #147 and #148. Looking for your holiday to swing into the New Year, count on the Fred Hughes Trio.
“Whether it’s the sonorities of Shook’s bass, or the inimitable soloing of Hughes, or the robust support and colorizations by drummer Russo, the trio presents a program of enjoyable holiday classics with a focus on melodicism and elegance. Not to mention a solidly swinging affair throughout.”
