modern & contemporary jazz with funk & rock influence
The extremely collective trio glides seamlessly from timelessly modern and contemporary jazz to electrifying funk. Complex ideas are realized as simply as possible, while the reference point may as well be Ellington as Ornette or Hendrix. The sound is full-bodied and mature and clearly jazz, but it is informed by knowledge from other styles.
The combined credits of the Californian threesome include working with Chick Corea, Brad Mehldau, Pat Metheny and Joshua Redman. So far they have put out two fine albums: the funkier studio live debut Fly and the more philosophical and serene Sky & Country, which appropriately came out on the legendary ECM label.
