Marta Sánchez Trío at The Jazz Gallery

Marta Sanchez’s trio will be celebrating the release of their new album “Perpetual Void” by performing at The Jazz Gallery in New York City.

Marta Sanchez’s trio is releasing a new album, “Perpetual Void,” this April. The trio will perform at the renowned Jazz Gallery in New York City to celebrate the album’s launch.

The album was recorded with Chris Tordini on bass and Savannah Harris on drums, but for this occasion, Eliza Salem will be stepping in. After releasing four albums with a quintet, Marta shifts to a trio setting, allowing more space for spontaneous interplay. The music retains the intricacy that characterized Marta’s quintet compositions, but the focus is now on the playing. There is more room for open improvisation, along with form and harmony.

Sanchez’s previous records have garnered praise from reputable sources such as The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Downbeat, and NPR. Notably, The New York Times recognized two of her albums as being in the top 10 of the year in 2015 and 2019.
