The Geoff Lapp Trio'......has been a cornerstone of the Montreal jazz scene since 1999. Extended gigs at many of the town's premiere night spots have established the group as a hot draw for aficionados in search of that heady space where soulful and cerebral fuse. Drawing upon a wide palette of jazz moods, 'The Geoff Lapp Trio' delivers a sound that is tasteful,innovative, and infectiously swinging.


BIOGRAPHY

Geoff Lapp, a Montreal native, was born in 1953, and is considered one of Canada’s most accomplished pianists/composers; he is a much sought-after accompanist for a host of top Canadian performers.

Originally trained in the classical tradition, Mr. Lapp studied at McGill University under the widely respected Art Maiste. Over time, he became known for his excellent technique and large repertoire of jazz standards. After gaining experience in the pop music world touring with the likes of Michel Pagliaro, he performed in salsa, country, funk and rock bands. In the early ‘80’s he became committed to the jazz idiom and has not looked back since then.

He has performed with renowned jazzmen such as Paquito d’Rivera, Don Menza, Richie Cole, Sonny Fortune, and Slide Hampton, among others. On one occasion, Liza Minnelli, in town for a concert appearance and finding herself at Biddles later that evening, liked the band so much that she spontaneously jammed with them at the landmark Montreal nightclub. (It should be noted that Geoff Lapp is one of the few Canadian jazz musicians with such an extensive club gig; length of which has contributed no doubt to his evolution as a player.) Lapp has performed extensively worldwide, in festivals and clubs both in North America and overseas.He also performs on a regular basis at the Montreal Jazz Festival with various ensembles.

At home in Quebec, he is a mainstay on the vibrant jazz scene, and has performed with a who’s who of local luminaries.

Zack in the Box
Playful -Zack in the Box, a funky original with a mock-stealthy, Mancini-meets-Horace Silver theme.

The album opens with a light-hearted caprice, glistening with bright, glassy tones that conjure up the play of sunlight at the edges of freshly-contoured glass.

Liner notes From the freestyle sparkle of Sunny Rays to the tightly patterned swing of The Party’s Over, Stained Glass reflects a wide spectrum of jazz colours. The album opens with a light-hearted caprice, glistening with bright, glassy tones that conjure up the play of sunlight at the edges of freshly-contoured glass. Hues deepen in Elsa, the Earl Zindars tune which Bill Evans elevated to jazz standard status. Initiated with a crystalline, Satie-like intro, the song soon liquefies into a wi
