Incredible musicianship and synergy from three musical veterans create a fused' jazz trio offering of original (and classically composed) enlightenment - an extremely enjoyable listen from the real deal. Collectively, the members of Three As One have performed with a virtual who's Who in American Pop/Jazz culture. Filled with all original compositions/arrangements, three of which are classical composer pieces, this recording is literally Three Fused As One. A dynamic vibe runs throughout this relaxed, 'chilled' out, virtuoso experience that is orchestrated brilliantly.
Each member is a master educator in their own right, and perform hundreds of clinics and concerts at jazz festival venues across the globe collectively & independently. Dr. Fischer is currently Chair of Jazz Studies at Capital University in Columbus, OH; Stefan Karlsson is Head of the Jazz Piano Division at the University of North Texas in Denton, TX; and Steve Houghton is Percussion Chair at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN.
