Born: March 14, 1975 Primary Instrument: Trumpet
An intimate and acoustic, improvisational jazz trio, The Chance Trio was born in the Spring of 2001 when trumpet player Bart Miltenberger, guitarist Matt Davis, and bassist Michael Taylor collaborated to play and develop their own original compositions. Since then the group has performed all over the Philadelphia area and beyond and was a featured act at the 3rd and 4th annual Collective Voices Festivals. The unique instrumentation of trumpet, acoustic guitar, and upright bass lends a distinctive and captivating sound to their passionate, melodic, and adventurous compositions. Drawing influences from Jazz, Blues, Folk, Rock, and the Avant-Garde, The Chance Trio were a featured act at the 2006 Festival of New Trumpet Music in New York City.
