Music by Three

About the Trio

Jay Weaver and Doug Lilla first met when they played in Al Hood's Aspects back in the 20th Century, and discovered their shared music interests. After a long period of each musician going down various paths through life, they began playing together again a few years ago. They are delighted that James DeJoie has joined forces with them in this new trio which seeks to make music live and breathe through composition and improvisation.

The purpose of the trio is to write, play, record and perform original music in addition to other pieces by some of their favorite composers. Both James DeJoie and Doug Lilla contribute original music that mixes written material with improvisation and covers a wide swath of possibilities. They look to the past, present and future in hope of displaying their humanity through the language of music.
