Chamber 3 renews an ongoing international collaboration between Seattle drummer Matt Jorgensen and German guitarist Christian Ekert. Since meeting in New York at the New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music in the early '90s, they have continued their musical relationship through the years with multiple projects, including the organ trio NY3 and tours in the U.S. and Europe. Here they team with the dynamic German saxophonist Steffen Weber for explorations through compositions and musical sketches that highlight their collective group aesthetic. In addition to the 3, they are joined on "Grassroots" by Seattle bassist Phil Sparks.
