Vector Trio Vector Trio

Vector Trio began life in 1996 simply as Vector, an improvisational avant-garde funk septet.

In 2002 Vector became Vector Trio. The musicians began making use of electronics, including looping devices and effects processors, to expand the possibilities of the trio. Their work to date is showcased in their all-original CDs--Plot Twist (2004), Live in DC (2005), and Paths Unknown (2006).

Vector Trio is a project designed to explore freedom and possibility in three voices, contextualized by cultural disharmony.

Vector Trio is:

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
