The Jeff Franzel Trio, consisting of piano bass and drumset, plays a standard jazz repertoire but specializes in re-interpretations of pop music and original compositions. Jeff Franzel is an award-winning songwriter who has written hit songs for Josh Groban, Shawn Colvin, and INSYNC among others and is also a jazz pianist. Separately, the members of the trio have accompanied Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme, Andy Bey, Ron Carter, Houston Person, John Hendricks and Annie Ross and countless others. Peppering their own arrangements of familiar pop songs and standards with original compositions by Jeff Franzel, the trio takes its' listeners on a journey that is both new and exciting and refreshingly familiar
The Jeff Franzel trio is available to perform for concerts as well as corporate and private events. Besides the jazz standards and songs from the American Songbook (Gershwin, Cole Porter, Rogers and Hart) we also perform pop music from artists such as Carole King, The Carpenters, Burt Bacharach, Sting and Sam Smith. We have also, on occasion, augmented ourselves to a quartet by adding a saxphonist who also doubles on flute.
