Step into a captivating journey of musical brilliance. The Cornelius Eady Trio blends jazz, funk, and poetry to create an immersive experience that will captivate audiences worldwide.

A gentle, rock ensemble that starts with the rumba kind music entailing liberations of the word,’ freedom’. ‘Your Freedom’ is a unique sonic liberation, quite literally setting all the listeners free. Then we arrive at the strange sonic escapade of ‘Living With A Stranger’. “When it's all said and done, we’re living in a stranger’s home”, this track with its poignant viewpoint on reality.

The next track, ‘ Tearing Down the Master’s House’ weaves a catacomb of interest and adventure, kind of inviting its listeners to step out of their comfort zones and do something extraordinary. The room for thrill and hasty jazz is filled in the album with the funks of ‘Crazy Bible’. A groovy pink-panther kind of beat entailing suspense and spy thriller musk into the air, this is an alternative funk to jazz at its finest.

Last, but not the least, we arrive on the suburban halos of the most mesmerising tunes of them all, ‘Withstand’. A track that feels like the shore next to a calm sea, this is literally the light peaking from the cracks of delusion and darkness. Overall, this is a unique blend of jazz, funk and surreal lyricism at its finest, and there is something in it for every mind. The Cornelius Eady Trio has undoubtedly established itself as a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
