The Paul Abella Trio fuses jazz and jam band sensibilities into one living and breathing beast. They are tight and funky and they meld many musical influences into a cohesive whole. The band consists of Chris Bernhardt on upright bass and Billy Denk on guitar with Paul on percussion playing the cajon.
Most Chicago Jazz fans know Paul Abella as the music director and morning show host at WDCB. Monday through Friday, Paul’s show is known for its eclectic programming, with daily Salsa and Brass Band features, and Paul also hosts the nationally syndicated show, Notes From the Jazz Underground.
