This well-honed trio is comprised of veteran jazz musicians who have played in this formation and others together for decades. Confident serving up jazz standards and their own originals with skill and verve, they’re not afraid to navigate uncharted musical territory. Each musician is revered in their own right. Trumpeter and composer, Nathan Breedlove is a twice Grammy-nominated artist, and a former member of the Lionel Hampton Jazz Orchestra. Drummer, percussionist, and composer Brian Kirk has performed with Dizzy Gillespie and was a member of The Count Basie Orchestra and is currently a Professor of Jazz at Seattle Central College. While Phil Sparks, one of Seattle’s leading bassists, and a band member of the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra, has performed and recorded with such luminaries as Ernestine Anderson, Floyd Standifer, and Hadley Caliman.
