The 39th Annual KPFA Crafts & Music Fair - Hard Knock Radio Sowcase

Valerie Troutt
In the Fall of 2000 by way of NYC, 3RIO was formed by Jaz Sawyer and pianist Nick Rolfe, (Sting, Kenny Garrett) premiering with veteran bassist Reggie Workman (Art Blakey, John Coltrane).  Mr. Sawyer has had performing experience in the trio format with such artists as Randy Weston, Eric Reed, Cyrus Chessnut & Jacky Terrasson. Inspired by the great classic trios such as Amad Jamal, Oscar Peterson and others, 3RIO's concept was a collaboration of peers not limited to the standard piano/bass/drums instrumentation. 3RIO takes a different direction for this performance with a stellar Bay Area lineup including Jaz Sawyer-Drums, Danya Stevens-Tenor Sax and Lukas Vesley-Bass.

At the young age of 4, he watched unknowingly musical greatness unfold before his impressionable eyes. His lineage, composed of percussionists, vocalists, funk, and Latin sound performers that demonstrated the possibilities of captivating the live audience. So the stage has never been a foreign place for Codany. He has continued to find ways to display his budding talents. Early in his career, Codany Holiday had the great opportunity to work on the musical, "Wake up and smell the coffee" with Lenny Williams, which challenged his endurance, and love for connecting with the audience. From there, Codany Holiday developed into a professional stage performer that brought him into a productive live music career.
