Sound Sky Trio is a forward-thinking jazz ensemble inspired by a shared passion for similar artists and honest friendship. Seattle-based drummer Ritchie Micah, who holds a B.M. Jazz Studies degree at UNT and Chicago-based saxophonist, composer and educator Addison Jordan conceptualized the group in 2018 while students at the University of North Texas. The Cuban-born musician Raul Reyes, described as a bassist with “advanced sense of rhythm, beautiful sound, time and solos” joined the group in 2010. Since then, they have performed across the United States at venues and events like Denton Arts & Jazz Festival (Denton), Tri-C Jazz Fest (Cleveland), Nash Jazz Club (Phoenix), the Meyerson Symphony Hall (Dallas), the Greenhouse, and Backyard on Bell. The focus of the group is to portray each member’s unique perspective and individuality through original compositions, unique arrangements of standards, and improvisation. In 2019, they recorded their debut EP Sound Sky Trio and in 2020, they will record a full-length album.
