The artistic paths and creative projects of drummer Tomas Fujiwara, guitarist Mary Halvorson, and cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum have been deeply entwined for over fifteen years, while each has established a reputation as a leading figure in their generation’s creative music community.

Since first connecting in Bynum’s Trio and Sextet in 2005, the three musicians have played together on hundreds of concerts and dozens of recordings, including with Fujiwara’s Triple Double, Bynum’s 9-tette and PlusTet, the collective quartets Illegal Crowns (with pianist Benoit Delbecq) and The Thirteenth Assembly (with violist Jessica Pavone), and in the Chicago meets NYC all-star band Living By Lanterns. In addition, Fujiwara and Halvorson work together in Thumbscrew, the Out Louds, Fujiwara’s The Hook Up and Halvorson’s Code Girl; Fujiwara and Bynum have maintained a duo for over two decades; and Halvorson and Bynum have shared the stage on multiple Anthony Braxton ensembles, including his long-running Diamond Curtain Wall Trio.

As the world slowly emerges from the pandemic, Fujiwara/Halvorson/Bynum will be making their first tour as a trio in over a decade, made possible with the support of Jazz Road, a national initiative of South Arts, which is funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with additional support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
