Formed in 2023, Naomi Nakanishi's Whimsy Trio features a group of rising NYC-based jazz musicians: Naomi Nakanishi as bandleader and pianist, Charlie Lincoln on the upright bass and Chase Elodia on drumset. Their music and improvising boasts of rhythmic playfulness, captivating melodies, and reflective composition, bringing raw energy to any stage. The band draws influence from bands/artists such as the Geri Allen Trio, Carla Bley, Angelica Sanchez, Keith Jarrett's Trios, and Thelonious Monk.
