Drawing its membership from the World Saxophone Quartet, the Cecil Taylor Unit, and the John Coltrane Quartet, TRIO 3 is a true supergroup of the jazz avant-garde, a self-described "band where the music is the leader."

Drummer Andrew Cyrille (b. 1939, Brooklyn) developed a pan-metrical approach to the kit that paved the way for a new kind of drummer, freed from the constraints of mere timekeeping. As a composer and bandleader, he's drawn inspiration from Haitian music, from African drummers, and from collaborating with dancers. He's also an accomplished educator, who has taught at the Graham Windham Home for Children in New York, and at the New School for Social Research where he remains a faculty member.

Oliver Lake (b. 1942, Marianna, Arkansas) is best known for his piercing, bluesy tone of the alto saxophone, but he is also a flutist, a poet, and a visual artist. In the '60s, Lake established himself with the multidisciplinary collective the Black Artists' Group, Saint Louis' answer to the Association for the Advancement for Creative Musicians. Moving to New York in the mid-'70s, Lake co-founded the World Saxophone Quartet with David Murray, Hamiett Bluiett, and Julius Hemphill, and achieved commercial success in the '80s with his reggae unit Jump Up. Since then, he's been commissioned to compose works for the Brooklyn Philharmonic and Pro Musica Chamber Orchestra and to arrange music for artists as popular and diverse as Bjork, Lou Reed, and A Tribe Called Quest. Ongoing projects with his own steel drum band, organ trio, and big band further prove that Lake's musical range is as vast as any on today's creative music scene.

Reginald Workman (b. 1937, Philadelphia) is an expressive, first-call doublebassist whose playing provides a direct link between the classic sessions of Blue Note Records' heyday and the present day free jazz scene. In the '50s and '60s, Workman worked with a who's who of mid-century jazz, including Thelonious Monk, Roy Haynes, Wayne Shorter, and Yusef Lateef. He was a member of the John Coltrane Quartet immortalized on the legendary 1961 Village Vaguard recordings, of the expanded Coltrane group that recorded Africa/Brass, and of the 1964 version of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers that cut Free For All and Indestructible for Blue Note. He's rarely recorded as a leader, focusing instead on supporting the sessions of others, most often with the late, great pianist Mal Waldron, with whom he recorded ten albums between 1973 and 1993. Like his bandmate Andrew Cyrille, he's a faculty member at the New School for Social Research in New York City.

The New York Times' Gary Giddins writes, "The Trio 3 experience involves the assimilation of every kind of jazz, from pre-bop mainstream to the furthest reaches of the avant-garde to sundry precincts on the world music front, achieving genuine tripartite equality." The combined pedigree of this all-star trio makes their Houston debut an unmissable event.
