The Bridge Trio

The Bridge Trio has its roots deeply entrenched in the New Orleans Jazz tradition. Drummer Joe Dyson, pianist Conun Pappas, and bassist Max Moran came together as a group at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA) under the direction of their mentor and former teacher, the legendary clarinetist and jazz educator Alvin Batiste. These young musicians performed with Batiste as the Jazztronauts while still in high school and played with him on his last gig. Their stirring musical tribute of his music at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in 2007, on the day of his passing, is regarded by many as one of the most moving performances in the festival’s history.   The trio today enjoys increasing professional recognition and success in the jazz world as members of saxophone master Donald Harrison’s band.
