About the album
Chamber 3 is an ongoing international collaboration between Seattle drummer Matt Jorgensen and guitarist Christian Eckert and saxophonist Steffen Weber from Germany. Since meeting in New York at the New School for Jazz & Contemporary Music in the early '90s, Jorgensen and Eckert have continued their musical relationship through the years with multiple projects, including the organ trio NY3 and tours in the U.S. and Europe. Adding Steffen Weber's dynamic musical voice in 2014, the trio convenes in Southern Germany or the U.S. for explorations through compositions and musical sketches that highlight their mesmerizing group aesthetic. Seattle bassist Phil Sparks joins the trio on "Tranatlantic," a collection of ten originals plus a Weber arrangement of the classic "When You Wish Upon a Star" from Pinocchio.
