Fang Biao Trio

See you on the first and third Friday nights of the month for our <Musician’s Improv Day> events!

Jam in Apr 4/5&4/19

The spirit of jazz exists in all kinds of vehicles, like the liquid fluidity that follows in architecture, which is like jazz. You improvise, we work together, we play with each other, you do something, they do something, it’s a way of trying to understand the city and what might be happening in the city

One chord is all it takes, two chords are driving it, and when three chords come in, you’re into jazz

The nature of music tends to be more emotional than intellectual

Jazz has developed into a language that is at times intimate and at times wilderness, always layered with life and living. Defining jazz, no single interpretation is sufficient, because it arrives at the heart

Jazz truly emerges when every spontaneous phrase of jazz is created, when every inspirational motivation is often the result of interactive audience participation. You can think of jazz as a battle of the egos; it’s about facing the moonlit side of emotions head on. And the best textbook about jazz is that it is a prism that always shines inside of you!

To jam is to improvise music

My music is the expression of my spirit, my beliefs, my knowledge, my being, and JAM is a meeting of jazz musicians who come together to speak the same language and light up the jazz process!

The first stop to open the doors of jazz. Improvising and communicating, we stay open
