“Nathan Walter....is the core of the music and common ground, where all other instruments feed from. He is a rock!
Antwon Owens charm radiates from behind his drum set, and he is great at making every member of the audience feel like he is playing just for them.

Let’s Play Ping Pong moves in ways a fine glass of scotch does, by thickly coating the glass with each swirl. This album is simply delicious. Fusing together elements of traditional jazz, a modern take on tonal theory and progressive rhythms is the lifeblood of Let’s Play Ping Pong. Three Squared is a jazz quartet (guitar, drums, bass, and saxophone) consisting of breathtaking melodies, awesome grooves and a certain symmetry where all four members unite on the same brainwave. The artwork jives exceeding well with the futuristic jazz approach making this LP a high quality product for all music lovers to own. Be sure to check out thr33squared.net for a list of shows and tours as well as listening to this great album.
