CEO EXPERIMENT is one of a kind Piano Trio which combines delicate atmospherics and highly creative improvisations, oscillating between almost every genre in Jazz. Elements of Post-bop and Contemporary Jazz are channelled through original compositions, serving as a vehicle for high energy interplaying. The music is thoughtful and inventive but also full of character, reflecting the different background and imagination of the players.
Pianist Leopoldo Osio (Venezuela), electric bassist Péter Erdei (Hungary) and drummer Cote Calmet (Peru), who make up CEO Experiment, are three of the most outstanding exponents of their respective instruments in Dublin, a city whose burgeoning jazz/improvised music scene punches well above its weight.
Recognized as the most versatile and energetic new band in Ireland, the trio has performed with international renown musicians like Kurt Rosenwinkel, Michael Buckley and Curtis Fowlkes.
This outfit has shared the stage with world-class artists such as Cory Henry’s Revival Project, Mark Guiliana Quartet, Christian Scott Quintet and Tom Rainey’s OBBLIGATTO.
Up to this date, the band has performed at the following Festivals: Down with Jazz, Bray Jazz Festival, 12 Points Festival, Galway Jazz Festival, Sligo and Howth Jazz Festivals.
