The trio, led by drummer Colin Dorion, features pianist Garrett Spoelhof and bassist Leland Nelson, all Ft Wayne natives. This group plays a wide variety of styles with an emphasis on improvisation and personal touch.
“Turning” is Colin Dorion’s first full length album which features pianist Garrett Spoelhof and bassist Leland Nelson. The album is comprised of mostly original compositions by Colin Dorion, with a couple exceptions being “Bessie’s Blues” by John Coltrane and “Dolores” by Wayne Shorter.
Each track acts as a love letter to an artist or a style of music that has greatly influenced Colin as a musician and composer.
