Essence Rider is a four-piece progressive jazz/fusion combo based in the Denver/Boulder area. The group formed out of a living room jam session, and two years later, they have completed their first full-length studio record, Triple Leaf. Revell displays a superb command of the piano, brining not only technical mastery, but also a deep melodic sensibility, and a sophisticated compositional style. He plays piano, Rhodes, Wurlitzer and synths on this expansive record; giving each track it’s own unique personality. Guitarist Matt Fuller brings a refreshing sonic texture to the music with his beautifully crafted melodic interplay. Jean-Luc Davis keeps the foundation of the music tight with acoustic and electric bass. The drumming style of Josh Moore is nothing short of impressive, ranging from sparse sensitivity to raging solos.
