Pier Luigi Salami / Press

““Pier Luigi’s style is pure energy. Under his hands the instrument tells you stories and describes emotions, creating a landscape of vibrating lines and colorful shapes.””

S.Val.; Il Cittadino

"This Seattle-based trio is electrifying. The energy that comes from their playing could power a city block for a week. Playing the music of piano player Pier Luigi Salami (yes, like the food) as well as covering renditions of famous jazz standards and tunes by great musicians like Metheny, Corea, Hancock, and Camilo (to mention a few), the trio satisfies all jazz-lovers and jazz new-comers alike. Chris Carlson kills it on the drum set, always adding a unique and fresh flavor to every tune. Nothing escapes Bennet Pullen’s grip on electric bass guitar as he keeps it steady with as little as one note or with some complicated groove that we’d never be able to pull off - but we can certainly dig it. Pier Luigi Salami, pianist and composer, will delight you with his heartfelt melodies and excite you with his invigorating style and enthusiasm. Listen to and go see PLS.trio if you want to feel blown away - they definitely create an explosion of energy on stage!" -

AM, ALS records

““ […] sounds like a contemporary blend of Richie Beirach and Keith Jarrett, but unique just the same. Lovely musicianship throughout the band."”

R.P.; L’Informazione

Ray Santisi
