As one of Asheville’s most unique jazz trios, Up Jumped Three and its members pride themselves on working constantly to write new material and find ways to keep things interesting for themselves and their audience. The core instrumentation of double bass, tenor & alto sax, and electric guitar allows each instrument to have space to breathe and be heard, and imparts a great amount of freedom in terms of writing and arranging.  Contrary to what one’s first impression may be, the lack of drums does not mean a loose rhythmic feel or framework.  A more energetic and focused effort when compared with 2016’s ‘Eleven Dialogues’, this new album from Up Jumped Three represents a more focused, streamlined, and adventurous sound than had previously been captured on record from the band.

Up Jumped Three brings a unique perspectives and years of experience to the bandstand with regard to composing, selection of material, and overall concept of sound. For Bryan and Frank, it reunites two former bandmates from a prior project, 'Done For The Evening', a trio that focused on a chord-less sound with upright and electric bass, sax, and drums, which gigged actively from 2006 to 2010.

Revisiting the trio format after a long hiatus, this time with chords, Frank and Bryan started casually playing together again in mid/late 2013. Frank had met Tim in 2012 and was immediately taken by his rich tone and interesting playing (on both guitar and bass). At Frank’s urging and invitation, Tim was asked to round out the lineup of the new group.

All three members are accomplished and prolific composers across many different genres with unique and singular compositional voices and approaches, and the collective sound of Up Jumped Three has evolved into a very unique entity, fusing colors and shades of ‘cool’ West Coast jazz, free jazz, and even blues and R&B at times, resulting in a drummer-less ‘chamber jazz’ sound that is at once dynamic, engaging, and lyrical.
