“Myriad3 is cutting edge, the future of modern jazz.” (Brent Black, Critical Jazz)
Myriad3 was an accident. Chris, Dan, and Ernesto had never played together until a few substitutions and a twist of fate put them on stage together for the first time in late 2010. Since then, the trio has completed multiple tours of Canada, the US and Europe, including opening for Earth, Wind & Fire at the Ottawa Jazz Festival in 2014.
The band is a true collective. Each member acts simultaneously as a leader and a sideman. They play mostly original music that features different aspects of jazz improvisation, ensemble playing and contemporary composition. In June 2014, Myriad3 released their second album, The Where on Universal/Alma Records.
“If you’re a fan of the jazz-on-the-edge sounds of E.S.T. or The Bad Plus, Toronto-based trio Myriad3 will be right up your alley.” (Ken Franckling, Jazz Notes)
