Victor Noriega and Gust Burns

"2 Trios" is a recording project featuring pianists Victor Noriega and Gust Burns leading two separate ensembles with the same backing rhythm section of bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer/percussionist Greg Campbell.
Victor and Gust will share the details of the unique process that brought this recording project together, and will also delve into the issues which were integral to "2 Trios"; spontaneity, preparation, synergy, the importance of contrast, and capturing pure improvisation.
Victor Noriega is an award-winning pianist, composer and arranger. His three albums of original compositions and arrangements -- Stone's Throw (2004), Alay (2006), and Fenceless (2008) -- each recorded with his trio, earned critical acclaim, and Noriega was honored with three Golden Ear awards (2005 Emerging Artist of the Year, 2006 Instrumentalist of the Year, and 2006 Album of the Year for Alay) by Earshot Jazz, recognizing the best of the Pacific Northwest jazz scene.
Noriega has been a featured artist in music festivals world-wide including the Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Earshot Jazz Festival, the Bumbershoot Festival, the Filipino-American Jazz Festival, and the Philippine International Jazz Festival, and has performed in premier music and jazz venues in North America and other parts of the world. A versatile player, Victor currently works on a diverse set of projects and collaborates with artists from a wide range of musical backgrounds.
