about

The Corey Kendrick Trio combines the infectious swing of the Oscar Peterson trio and the intricate interaction of the Bill Evans trio with a modern harmonic sensibility to create a truly dynamic group sound. Established while studying under Rodney Whitaker at Michigan State University, the Corey Kendrick Trio has developed their melody-driven, straight ahead sound over two and a half years of extensive performing.


On their debut recording, Rootless, the Trio delves into the themes of life in transition and all the associated emotions, whilst exploring the sonic tapestry of the piano trio. From the anxiety of starting anew (The Unknown/The Unexpected), to the loneliness of an unfamiliar home (Alone In Michigan), to the pure joy of new friends and experiences (Blues al Pastor), to the indescribable emotions of new parenthood (Lullaby For A New Mother), Rootless runs the gamut both in terms of emotional content and stylistic possibilities.

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by Eric Wojahn at Solid Sound Ann Arbor, MI
