Three Squared

THREE SQUARED: is a fresh fusion of the “nu” jazz sound in America. The original music is pulled from the exotic sounds of Persia, Japan, Latin America, House Music & Blues; then blended & infused with the feel of Jazz

Antwon Owens, Matt King, Jim Disner and Nathan Walter make up the band Three Squared. Heavily influenced by Denver trumpeter/composer great Ron Miles and other modern instrumental artists such as Bill Frisell, Fred Hess and Don Byron, they perpetuate the evolution of American music through composition and performance.

Some venues that have showcased their talents are The Brown Palace Hotel, The Walnut Room, Dulcinea’s, Quixote’s, 1515 Market, Dazzle Jazz Club, Mercury Cafe, Trio’s (Boulder and Denver) KUVO Jazz Radio Station, Toad Tavern, Herman’s Hideaway, The Soiled Dove Underground, The D’ Note, Aspen Jazz Festival, The OutPost (New Mexico), Red Rocks Amphitheater, Falling Rock Tap House, Larimer Lounge, The Oriental Theater, Alto, Herb's, UNC Greeley Jazz Festival, DU Jazz Festival, Metropolitan State College of Denver Jazz Festival, and many other auditoriums, clubs and music festivals.

“…beautiful…delicate compositions” -Stanley Jordan

“Guitar is perfected by Jim Disner, a dedicated and inspiring player who wears his heart on his hand, and touches everyone else's with the audible beauty he creates.”

“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.”

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
