schooled musicians Ethan Mallove- keyboards, accordion, vibraphone
and vocals; Eric Platz- drums and Gar Ragland- bass, guitars and
vocals, display glimpses of eccentric genius.

can hear Zappa, tight Steely Dan harmonies, quirky lyrics, skillful
playing, and flashes of REAL jazz. Eric Platz's drumming skills
harken back to some of my favorite Elvin Jones moments. Ethan
Mallove's Rhodes reminds me of early Herbie Hancock and Gar Ragland's
vocal and basswork, particularly in the soulful ballad "Summer
Haze," absolutely gives me goose bumps!
is a very complex, sophisticated hybrid of a multitude of musical
styles that's guaranteed to please those who want their aural
senses stimulated and challenged.

layers of vocal harmonies buttoned up to odd time signatures and
musical fluctuations, Trikona makes their personal experiences
a spacious romp of sight and sound. Their clever control of musical
imagery and mastery of delivery makes them one of the most refreshing
acts Boston has seen in years.
