TRIO 3 (lake/workman/cyrille)

TRIO 3(lake/workman/cyrille)/BIO

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, transversing 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.
