About Gryphon Trio and Patricia O’Callaghan

Gryphon Trio

Gryphon Trio

 

It was at Lula Lounge, Toronto, that the Gryphons proved their commitment to changing the context for chamber music. Working with jazz and world-music artists, the Trio launched a series of programs that thrilled audiences. One of those programs, featuring tangos, pop tunes and Mexican folksongs, reunited the Gryphons with their  Constantinople partner, Patricia O’Callaghan, and led to Broken Hearts & Madmen. Produced by Roberto Occhipinti, a classically trained jazz musician renowned for his work in Latin music, musically, the program is global in spirit, mixing Latin songs with jazz-tinged tunes by some of pop’s most revered composers.
