The Harry Bartlett Trio is a Toronto based group featuring three young emerging artists on the Canadian Jazz Scene. While rooted in the jazz tradition, their music draws from a wide range of musical traditions which is highlighted in their compositions and improvisations.
In July 2018, the Harry Bartlett Trio released a debut EP featuring original compositions which capture elements of folk and jazz music with an emphasis on improvisation and group interplay. Following the release, the trio promoted their EP in an Ontario tour including an appearance at the international award winning festival, Music Niagara.
With a grant from the Faculty of Music Undergraduate Association (University of Toronto), the Harry Bartlett Trio conducted a Canadian tour in November 2019 appearing in major festivals and venues across the country. In addition to performances, the trio facilitated open improvisation workshops to high school students in each city thy visited.
