Having performed together for 12 years, the musical and personal rapport between guitarist John Stowell, bassist Jeff Johnson, and drummer John Bishop has attained what Cadence magazine calls "an enviable tightness." Whether performing their intriguing originals or the thoughtful re-imaginings of less-done classics, each piece is a ticket to somewhere unique. On "...But Not Heard," the trio is joined by a long-time compatriot, saxophonist Hans Teuber who adds several original tunes and another deeply integrated and sympathetic voice to the ensemble.

I love jazz because it's sophisticated, international, atmospheric yet free, cool and warm.
I was first exposed to jazz through the sultry voice and flawless swing of my mother.
I met Mark Murphy, David Linx, Kurt Elling, and Youn Sun Nah.
The best show I ever attended was Youn Sun Nah in Paris.
The first jazz record I bought was Native Dancer by Wayne Shorter and Milton Nascimento
My advice to new listeners: open your mind and your ears, forget about structure, feel the textures.
Go see live music and keep buying CDs!
