Greg Loughman Trio


        Musicians Greg Loughman (bass), Anastassiya Petrova (piano), and Tyson Jackson (drums) met while pursuing their Master's Degree from the Berklee Global Jazz Institute. In this setting, guided by founder Danilo Perez, they formed a lasting musical bond, forging a style of modern jazz that is melodically engaging and rhythmically driving with subtle and complex undercurrents. In addition to their busy musical lives, they all now teach at Berklee in various capacities.

        Bandleader bassist Greg Loughman has been a fixture on the Boston jazz scene for over 20 years, and performed and/or recorded with artists including Danilo Perez, Jerry Bergonzi, George Garzone, Hal Galper, Mark Murphy, and many others. His career has taken him around the world, performing not just at renowned clubs in the USA such as The Blue Note, Smalls, The Green Mill, and Boston Symphony Hall, but also tours in Japan, Russia, Europe, and the Caribbean.

        Anastassiya Petrova is a jazz pianist/organist from Kazakhstan and has performed at international festivals in Italy, Bulgaria, Russia, Panama, Costa Rica, and the US. She has performed with Noah Preminger, Allan Chase, Patricia Perez, Ben Street, Adam Cruz, Marco Pignataro, Ellis Hall, Catherine Russell, Dave Liebman and others.

        Tyson Jackson completes the trio on drums. A native of West Palm Beach, FL, Tyson has performed with Tia Fuller, Catherine Russel, Joey Alexander, and many other top talents. His prodigious talent and creative and supportive playing have led to him being in high demand in Boston and has also led to tours throughout the US and the world.

        In addition to performing as a trio, this group plays on Loughman's latest album, RE: Connection. This large scale work, recorded remotely at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, has received glowing reviews from national and international jazz press.

reviews of RE: Connnection:


"The cumulative effect of this music and these sounds treats me to the strange and imaginative ideas I’ve been hearing from the international jazz artists, and Greg Loughman should expect plenty of attention on the world jazz stage after Re: Connection. Highly recommended."


"fresh and inventive"


"Deep undercurrents"


"exquisitely succulent"


"Greg Loughman’s Re:Connection is indeed regarding connection and about re-establishing connection. It is hopeful, self-aware, self-critical, and full of tenderness and love."
