Biography

Like many jazz musicians, the members of this trio all made their individual ways to New York City.
Ethan Mann arrived in early 1991. He began working with veteran New York-based jazzmen like bassist Bob Cunningham, pianist-organist Rahn Burton and saxophonists Jimmy Vass, along with younger players like pianist Matt Ray in clubs such as The 55 Bar, Augie's and Birdland. Chip Crawford came to town in 2001 and landed a job in an organ trio with saxophonist Javon Jackson and drummer Terreon Gully at a club in northern New Jersey. He also worked in Harlem with veteran saxophonist Patience Higgens. Greg Bandy was working in New York by the mid-1970s at The Village Vanguard and other clubs and soon became drummer of choice for first-rate saxophonists Pharoah Sanders and Gary Bartz. In mid 2008 Mann had the opportunity to work with Crawford and Bandy at a steady Saturday night gig in the East Village. This long running gig allowed the trio to develop a relaxed and cohesive sound.
