One might say that spontaneity is the main ingredient in any creative project. Certainly this is true of the Chris Poulsen Trio, thriving on the excitement of improvised musical expression.
Since forming in 2004, the instrumental group has performed at the Queensland Music Festival, Valley Jazz festival, and the Australian Gospel Music festival, as well as residencies in Brisbane's music hub, Fortitude Valley. With an energetic stage presence and an intriguing approach to composition, it's not hard to see why the band has gained such a large following. Striving for an artistic and original sound, the Chris Poulsen Trio sizzles, playing acoustic jazz and aggressive b-bop, through to funk/fusion, with a tip of the hat to past and current masters.
