Third Movement

Third Movement

BandJazzRock

We are an original blend of the Nu-jazz styles of Medeski, Martin and Wood with the progressive drive of Umphreys Mcgee, and Frank Zappa, combined with some old school dirty Funk.

Biography

Ray Charles once said, “The important thing is to feel the music, really feel it and believe it.” It’s all about imagination. Being an instrumental three piece, you really have to think about the music and even perhaps create your own thoughts, your own story, your own “painting” inside your head while listening to the music.

We’ve discovered that with just the three of us, the sound is full, and the music seems to write itself. Being slaves to the groove, there is no telling how far we can take our music. You will hear a wide variety of styles in our music ranging from jazz fusion, to progressive rock, and psychedelic grooves. Our influences include, but are not limited to, Radiohead, Phish, The Doors, Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Umphreys, Zappa, Medeski, Martin and Wood, John Scofield, Niacin and Mahavishnu Orchestra.

Every tune has its own style, with many unexpected key changes and odd time signatures, making playing and listening an unforgettable experience!

Music is not just our passion, it's our way of life. Our intention is to turn on our listeners to music that they can feel, enjoy, and can't help but dance to, leaving a long lasting impression.
