Kristen Cornwell Trio-16

After the first musical meeting with Patrick Deltenre during recordings for her Duke Ellington CD Kristen knew that there was more music to make together. Deciding on a drummerless setting, together with husband and bassist Christophe Devisscher, the trio came together for the first time in 2014. Over the next few years followed a series of concerts and the in 2017 plans for recordings were made. With release set for March 2018, Spoonful, Back To The Blues is a homage to the essence of the blues. Repertoire from diverse sources from Buffalo Springfield to folk to Willie Dixon sit perfectly together in the expressive and intimate trio setting.  A spoonful of musical medicine!
