 Our plans for 2014 include The release of a live concert DVD to be called Leña!!!, already in the mixing process, a live album featuring music from various concerts, Will be named R.ock A.nd W.onder, El Trío en vivo, an acoustic live album to be named Onpló, and a whole bunch of concerts. We`ll also be doing some recordings of brand new songs for our fourth album which will be called Silbando… means Whistling…Seems I`m gonna keep busy. Hope I can get everything done!

I`m also working on my first solo album, hopefully it will be ready in 2014. And I`m about to enter the studio to perform saxophone duties with the amazing Isaac Hernandez Quintet recording its first album: Point of view, wait for it!!! We`re almost signing the contract with our first non-exclusive distributor, Melodic Revolution Records, hopefully more contracts like this one will come, I`m working on that.

We`ll do a internet download party to celebrate our ten years making music and the launching of my new web, which includes everything El Trío plus more stuff. For that celebration I will put together a compilation sampler from our three studio albums plus three songs from our new upcoming live cd, fifteen songs in total!!!So keep in touch and check out the web, reviews, and the YouTube channel…Get ready for new videos soon!!!


We love you,

Jonatan Piña Duluc y El Trío

So just got back from listening to the first pre-mixes of our upcoming live album/DVD.  So far it`s got 12 songs, oldies and new ones, even a never recorded before song!  I still got to go through some recordings and footage. It`s pretty intense and raw, I think I`m gonna call it Rock And Wonder, El Trio en vivo. What do you think? We`ll keep you posted with news about this and other  cool things that are meant to happen in 2014.  Cheers!!!cosadejonatan

Así que acabo de llegar de escuchar las primeras pre-mezclas de nuestro próximo álbum en vivo/DVD. Hasta ahora tiene 12 canciones incluyendo nuevas, viejas y hasta alguna inédita! Todavía tengo que chekiar algunas grabaciones y decidir algunas cosas.  La grabación está bien intensa y salvaje. Creo que lo llamaré Rock And Wonder, El Trio en vivo.  Que creen? Los mantendremos al tanto sobre este y otros asuntos interesantes que vienen para el 2014.


Highly recommended, most famous page on prog, fusion and everything related ! cosadejonatan
