New York City, New York, USA

Three musicians who instinctively interplay together.


Saxophonist, Eric Person, Bassist, Joseph Lepore and Drummer, Shinnisuke Takahashi bonded in 2010 while playing some informal jams at Joe’s home in Queens, New York. “We struck a different feeling from the very start” says Eric Person. Those feelings convey the softest soft to the hardest hard of the music and they honor their duty to keep it moving in the now.

The trio plays with an uncommon unity with a big full sound as if they are four or five musicians. A listener will not miss a piano or guitar. Their interchange is paramount and they play a wide spectrum of expressions, textures, linear devices, and colorations. They seek to go beyond the common treads that line much of modern music today. The group respects the great roots that were laid down long ago while naturally reaching upward and out onto their own unique branch reflecting the current time.
