ON 3

In the style of great contemporary musicians, ON 3 continues to redefine musical genres, pushing the boundaries of jazz, Latin, Brazilian, world and popular music, and reaching across cultures and ages through the intimacies of their melodies, the intricacies of their harmonies and the infectiousness of their rhythms.
ON 3 was formed in 1998 as a natural outgrowth of these 3 musicians? ever-growing reaches in music.
In the spring of 2000, the group was selected among 110 contestants to represent the United States as Jazz Ambassadors. The group had a choice of where to tour. Their choice: Latin America. The group performed nearly every night of the week for 6 weeks to wowed audiences and standing ovations. This group proved that music is the language of choice, regardless of where they travel. The United States Embassy post in Uruguay wrote that the group ?proved to be the ideal jazz ambassadors: great young musicians with contagious enthusiasm?, providing an eclectic combination of new rhythms and sounds mixed with classics that by the end of the evening had the entire audience clapping along.? There was no doubt of their wide appeal as host country Uruguay noted, ?A combination of old-time jazz aficionados and the younger alternative music crowd squeezed around the stage.? The post in Peru wrote, ?Audiences across the country offered ovation after ovation for these fine musicians. The musicians were swamped by admirers.?
Admiration is just one of the consequences of witnessing this group perform.
Audiences go home with new meaning for the words ?jazz? and ?improvisation.? ON 3 bursts the musical genres at the seams as the universal appeal of their music cannot be contained so simply. As the hosts in Colombia put it, ?The theater rocks with their [musical] interpretations.? As the audience members retreat to their homes, or perhaps a record store, they are left with an insatiable appetite for what they tasted in ON 3?intoxicating music!
