For over 20 years, Juno nominated pianist/composer Andy Milne has demonstrated boundless versatility, collaborating with dancers, visual artists, poets and musicians spanning jazz, classical, pop, folk, and world music. The newest full-time professor to join the University of Michigan jazz faculty, he splits his time between Ann Arbor and New York City. Driven by creative insights from his varied projects, Milne formed the trio Unison in 2017, building upon the synchronistic relationship he has developed with bassist John Hébert since 2010. They are rounded out by drummer Clarence Penn, who represents complementary threads within the fabric of Milne’s piano trio philosophy -- the intersection of texture and groove.
Unison mixes Milne’s originals with modern yet soulful arrangements of standards and jazz classics. Their approach emphasizes the subtlety of texture, sound, groove and interplay. Milne’s compositions draw from his expansive background, while also expressing his love for the jazz tradition. They are set to record their debut CD in 2019.
