2001 WAMI-award winning jazz pianist, Russell Holmes has performed with many great jazz ensembles including MPS, Frames of Minds, The Raggabillys, Hip Mo Toast and artists such as Dale Barlow, Red Rodney and many others. Russell’s most recent recording is a nationally released cd by the ABC Jazz label entitled Fire and Rain ‘THE JAMES TAYLOR PROJECT’ (released 21st February 2009) which features the regular trio line-up performing eleven beautiful tracks of James Taylor songs.
The Russell Holmes Trio explore the art and essence of the piano trio with their own well-defined flavour and personality. The group swings hard and grooves with reminiscent vibes of the Oscar Peterson Trio as well as more contemporary groups like the Brad Mehldau Trio, pays homage to the likes of Keith Jarrett and Herbie Hancock and yet stands alone with its own treatment and inimitable expression. Russell’s sensitive style is supported by Matt Willis on bass and Mike Perkins is currently filling for Daniel Susnjar on drums, creating an interactive, unique and inspiring ensemble whose overall essence is one pure and authentic voice. With an increasing number of original compositions being included in both recordings and live sets, The Russell Holmes Trio promise a satisfying jazz experience.
