Alistair Sim Trio is a Brooklyn based 3 piece musician combo including Alistair - Guitar, Nick Tardif - Base and Joshua Fleischmann - Drums. Occasionally a keyboardist or other musicians sit in with this trio of exquisite versatile musicians. The trio plays what I would call a Jazz based mix of traditional jazz, rock mixed jazz, up beat and experimental music with a wide range of influences. Depending on the gig, you may hear one of these styles or a variation depending on the mood. The individual talents of each musician are brought out during performance through solo interludes, executed to blend together perfectly and play off one another.
A combination of planned and improved movements’ reminiscent of the old time Harlem club jazz musicians that I've only seen in film clips leaves the audience clapping and moving to this sweetly mastered music. All this is brought forward into a 21st century, contemporary sound that has the crowd glad they came and wanting to stay at the club all night! The trio plays many venues in Manhattan, Brooklyn and other NYC and East coast locations. When we caught their last Brooklyn show I was reminded of an old Chicago Jazz man I knew who would use the slang: "Down Kats" when he heard something exceptional. When I brought this up to the band they smirked with their modern edge and said it sounded a little '50s '60s... but Nick was quick to add, he'd go for being a Down Kat *chuckle
