"Get Happy" with the 
Chris Coogan Trio

At last!  A CD with the piano as lead voice! "Get Happy" includes many Chris Coogan originals never before recorded.  

With John Mobilio on bass and Jim Royle on drums, “Get Happy” delivers a wide variety of styles bringing all the nuance, intimacy and excitement of trio jazz. This album combines Coogan originals and arrangements of beloved standards in Chris’ own inimitable way quoting broad influences from bebop, hard bop, soul, blues, modal jazz, fusion, as well as Latin styles. His compositions are tightly constructed melodies that feature the interplay between musicians as they interpret and improvise.  This is music that seeks to thrill and move, to remind us all of the beauty of human interactions, sometimes yearning and sensitive, other times bluesy, joyful and celebratory.
