Our Newest Recording Is Here!

Love Letters, the 6th release by the critically acclaimed Fred Hughes Trio, features some of the best known love songs from the Great American Songbook. With Fred Hughes on piano, Amy Shook on bass and Frank Russo at the drums, this recording is a must have for those looking for a romantic, jazz infused performance.


“Love Letters is another first class performance of timeless standards from The Fred Hughes Trio. It’s romance that swings, gotta love it”.

Rich Germaine, Jazz Radio Network


“A wonderful selection of songs performed by a great acoustic trio. Add to that a custom-built Concert Grand piano as the centerpiece of the instrumentation, and you have a truly enjoyable listening experience.”

Charles Husson, Host of Evening Jazz, Hawaii Public Radio
