ATB Trio's music is an original blend of styles drawing from concert and folk traditions. It begins with the electric lever harp of Amelia Romano, whose playing is rhythmic and dynamic. Enthralled by an intricate muse, she covers low and high registers with contrapuntal panache. Amelia is joined by Matt Ebisuzaki on C rotary-valve trumpet and Tim Renner on upright bass. ATB Trio forges each composition from multiple perspectives, passing melodies and improvisation from player to player. This is spirited, creative music from collaborators who encourage each other to push their technical and expressive capabilities.
