The Bill McBirnie Trio
(featuring Bernie Senensky & Anthony Michelli)

Bill McBirnie has released a new album that departs, in a significant way, from his previously acclaimed acoustic jazz projects (Mercy with Robi Botos; Paco Paco with Bernie Senensky; and Nature Boy with Mark Eisenman). In FIND YOUR PLACE, Bill places the flute in a very unlikely role…as part of an organ trio!…

For this singular format, Bill has recruited two outstanding fellow Canadian musicians—Bernie Senensky on Hammond B3 organ and Anthony Michelli on drums. In keeping with Bill's previous acoustic projects, FIND YOUR PLACE combines a clear acoustic sonority with the natural ambiance of a blowing session.

On this project, the trio performs the following tunes:

(1) So In Love (Cole Porter) – Latin
(2) Yes Indeed! (Sy Oliver) – for Sir James Galway – gospel
(3) Sister Sadie (Horace Silver) – swing
(4) Oh! Darling (Lennon/McCartney) – shuffle
(5) Minority (Gigi Gryce) – bebop
(6) Estate (Martino/Brighetti) – bossa nova
(7) Jeannine (Duke Pearson) – swing
(8) Gee Baby, Ain't I Good To You (Redman/Razaf) – ballad
(9) Yes Or No (Wayne Shorter) – modal
(10) Soy Califa (Dexter Gordon) – Latin/swing
(11) Rhythm-A-Ning (Thelonious Monk) – swing
(12) Find Your Place (Bill McBirnie) – for Svetlana - bossa nova

FIND YOUR PLACE is now available at both CDBaby and iTunes.

[Do not hesitate to contact Bill directly regarding reviews or interviews about this new release.]
