“Myriad3…may be the most noteworthy small group to emerge from Canada in years.”
-Dan Bilawsky, All About 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 performed all over the world, including Ronnie Scott’s International Jazz Piano Trio Festival, the Tokyo Jazz Festival, and a showcase performance at Jazzahead! in Bremen, Germany.
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 performance and contemporary composition. The band has released 5 albums on Alma Records/Universal: Tell (2012); The Where (2014); Tell((chip)) (2015); Moons (2016); and Vera (2018.) The Where was nominated for a Juno Award and a Sirius Radio SM Indie Music Award in 2015.
“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
