I didn't even know he had a new trio. I'd be willing to bet anything Bruce Hornsby attaches his name to is solid. I'm not sure if you've ever seen him live (I've been fortunate enough to see him a handful of times), but he is one bad mofo.
The first time I saw him was probably 10 years ago in a tiny theater in some tiny town on the Ohio/West Virginia border. He started playing "End of the Innocence" of Don Henley fame, and then stopped after a couple of bars and said: "I didn't make this song famous, but I wrote, so I'm gonna play it." It was awesome.
If you have a chance to see this trio, I'd say do it.
