Fine Wine Trio
R.B. Kapp - Vocals/Percussion Gene Perla - Bass Richard Wyands - Keyboards Once upon a swingin' time, down an old Mexican road line with cactus, near a mineral spring and a cobblestone bridge, lived a jazz singer. Every morning at sunrise he walked his dog, singing through the corn fields to the wind rustling the yellow stalks, dreaming of New York. Set back from a tree-lined lane near a red picture postcard barn, green fields and horses, was a bass player on a tractor. One night at a gig in northern New Jersey, he discovered his old music school chum up from Mexico. A piano player just back from Switzerland, on his way to play a concert in New York, met the singer in an elevator. Soon, lyrics were written, a demo recorded, photos taken and a tape send off the the Thelonious Monk Institute Vocal Competition in Washington D.C. where it advanced to the semifinal. Like down in the cellar of an established house, back amongst the barrels to that one special bottle, a taster's treasure, the Fine Wine Trio was born. Our purpose is to pop the cork and bring forth a palette of Fine Wine sounds.
