The Chance Trio

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
