The Paul Shinn Trio

Consisting of bassist Dominique Sanders, drummer Ryan Lee and pianist Paul Shinn, the Paul Shinn Trio was formed in the summer of 2013. After first filling in a few dates at Kansas City's Green Lady Lounge, the band was asked by owner John Scott to perform a weekly Sunday evening engagement there. The positive reception from audiences and fellow musicians alike only encouraged the creative spirit of the group and by the end of that summer their debut album "Reason Pure" was released. Featuring solely Paul’s original compositions and arrangements, this album was deemed an “essential souvenir of his time in Kansas City” ( and characterized as “having a unique Shinn Trio stamp” (JAM Magazine). This album chronicles a young trio well on its way towards carving out its own unique 'sound' which simultaneously seeks to maintain a healthy respect for the lineage of jazz piano trios while continuously pushing past conventional boundaries of all sorts. On January 11th, 2015, the trio released their second album Easy Now: Live at the Green Lady Lounge. Featuring eight new compositions and arrangements, this album accurately transmits the energy of the band's live performances into a recorded format.
