Trio 3: Oliver Lake, Reggie Workman & Andrew Cyrille ft. Jason Moran

TRIO 3 is a band where Music is the Leader. This unconventional collaboration of internationally- recognized jazz masters, Oliver Lake (multi- reeds), Reggie Workman (bass) and Andrew Cyrille (drums), formed to centralize the members creative energies, promoting a single governing principle: Organized Improvisation. Each is a distinct soloist but it’s definitely an unadulterated group-based effort. Open to the infinite possibilities, TRIO 3 mixes and explores different colors and the whole vocabulary of jazz, taking the music to the future.

Collectively, TRIO 3 spans over 130 years of jazz history having played with pivotal artists of jazz and modern music including John Coltrane, Mary Lou Williams, Herbie Mann, Art Blakey, The World Saxophone Quartet, Lou Reed, Richard Muhal Abrams, Cecil Taylor and more.

Deeply rooted in the tradition, these jazz veterans describe their sound as “futuristic music within the idiomatic continuum of jazz.” Like musical alchemists, TRIO 3 boldly carries the music forward spinning 3-dimensional jazz, reconfiguring jazz conventions of compositions, harmony, meter and melody.

According to Lake, “None of us assumes the position of drummer or of a saxophone player or drummer. We're each “one third of a unit that makes music, each capable of taking responsibility at the time that it is needed to make that music. With that in mind and with that “kind our mind,” TRIO 3’s music becomes unique.”

TRIO 3 has recently invited guest artists to expand upon their core. Guest artists have included pianist Jason Moran with the group performing and recording with Pianists Irene Schweizer and Geri Allen.

And so it is with TRIO 3- Borderless, freely taking flights of fancy from ragtime to no-time, fiery rapid-fire ostinatos to slow, blues and modal vamps, mixing original compositions with avant-garde, traditional jazz, blues, bebop and beyond” with their audiences gleefully along for the ride!


2010 Macarthur Foundation Recipient Jason Moran has established himself as a risk-taking pianist and innovator of new directions for jazz. His awards include Jazz Artist, Jazz Album & Pianist of the Year in the 59th Annual Downbeat Critics Poll; Rising Star Jazz Artist, Rising Star Pianist, Rising Star Composer in the 2003-04 Downbeat Critics Polls; and the first Playboy Jazz Artist of the Year award.
