3 Squares is a “Jazz” piano trio made up of pianist David Vincent Mills, fretless bassist Daren Burns, and drummer Craig Bunch; three musical veterans with long resumes (Their collected performance credits include: Wadada Leo Smith, Vinny Golia, Steve Trovato, John ‘Drumbo’ French, Mike Kenealley, Kimberly Locke, plus countless others) and long histories of playing together.
Immersed in the daunting history of the great piano trio’s like, Bill Evans, Thelonious Monk, and Ahmad Jamal, but forward thinking in scope to include the ground-breaking and innovative explorations of contemporary piano trios; such as, Keith Jarrett, Medeski Martin and Wood, and The Bad Plus, 3 Squares seeks to branch off and establish it’s own traditions and practices of what a modern day “Jazz” piano trio can be by pushing the envelope and resituating the ensemble compositionally, texturally, harmonically, and rhythmically. The trio has the ability to drift from Monk-like playfulness to orchestral lushness to create their own unique, multi-faceted, and creative take on the standard jazz piano trio format.
