New CD launch for Trio

On Sunday 24 October the Charl du Plessis Trio will release their new CD ‘It Takes Three’ with brand new recordings made in 2021. This album features the musical contributions of bassist Werner Spies and drummer Peter Auret. This is the trio’s first recording at the Atterbury Theatre on the new Steinway concert grand as well as the trio’s first album recorded in South Africa since Peter Auret joined the trio in 2018.

Music on this album reveals the trio’s first exploration in the world of Tango with crossover versions combining its classic style with swing and featuring music by Argentinean composer Astor Piazzolla to celebrate a century since his birth.

Arrangements were constructed over several months with suggestions and contributions by all three members of the trio. This was done in form of workshop-rehearsals and could benefit from time to experiment and explore different musical avenues, inputs and experiences.

The concert in the Atterbury Theatre will include music from the CD as well as some favourite requests by friends and fans.
