Zach Foley Trio
One of the most sublime finds on NYC’s youth-infused jazz scene is the Zack Foley Trio, featuring Ryan Ferrera on guitar and Chris Tordini on bass. The group summons a melancholy undertow that inevitably evolves, resolves, transcends. Their renditions coax out shadings of heartbreak and loneliness, hinting at life’s impermanence. Perhaps the most melancholic—and effectively disarming—facet of the quartet is Foley’s heartfelt vocal style. He is at once vulnerable, nuanced, and mournful. Foley’s attitude is ironic, defying romantic convention. He strips away the neat sentiments we associate with jazz standards and exposes the bare meaning—even artifice—at their root. The result is to reveal songs as small treasures, often tinged with the acknowledgment and acceptance of loss, songs that sparkle amid the otherwise cynical cacophony of the age. There is a depth of spiritual wisdom, psychic insight and struggle, and meditative practice that inform the music, throughout.
