This dynamic Los Angeles-based cooperative trio performs original music and choice standards in a conversational and highly interactive improvisational style. They treat each and every performance as a new beginning, allowing musical ideas to freely flow between them.

Miro Sprague is a pianist, composer, bandleader, and educator known for his inspiring creativity, dynamic and passionate performance style, and artistic versatility. Working primarily in the world of jazz and improvised music, Miro has been an active performer since the early 2000’s, touring throughout the U.S. and overseas and performing at many of the world's top venues and festivals. Currently based in Los Angeles, Miro leads his own trio and quintet, and has performed with many renowned artists including Greg Osby, Ingrid Jensen, Linda Oh, Jeff Parker, Joe LaBarbera, Steve Cardenas, Jerome Jennings, Ed Howard, Walter Smith III, Jerry Bergonzi, Houston Person, and many others. He is also an in-demand vocal accompanist and since 2015 has been the pianist of choice for renowned vocalist Karrin Allyson, touring extensively with her throughout the U.S. and overseas. He has recorded on numerous albums as both a sideman and a bandleader and he is currently gearing up to release his next album “Constant” later this year.

Karl McComas-Reichl is a bassist, cellist, film composer and artist. He is from Stevens Point, Wisconsin and earned a BFA from The New School. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and good friend Lesley Ann Wheeler. Arrangement and performance credits include: Baskets Season 4, The Shrink Next Door, Special, Three Busy Debra, ONI: Thunder Gods Tale, Grace & Frankie, NY State Lottery. Other performance credits include: Jane Monheit, John C. Reily, Joshua White, Anthony Wilson, Glenn Zaleski, Josh Nelson, Peter Schlamb, Hermon Mehari, Libery Ellman, Logan Richardson, Colin Stranhan, Geoffrey Keezer, and Tommy Crane.

Dan Schnelle is one of the most talented, in-demand drummers in the Los Angeles area. Known for an intuitive ability to provide precisely what is necessary for each performance, Schnelle understands how to make other musicians comfortable, while bringing enough of the unexpected to his playing to keep it consistently exciting. Unsatisfied with the idea that the drum set is merely a time-keeping device, Schnelle is thoughtful about how this unique instrument, with its nearly limitless variety of sounds, can be tastefully and effectively deployed in a wide variety of musical situations. Notable collaborators in the studio and on tour have included Billy Childs, John Daversa, David Benoit, Jeff Parker, Karrin Allyson, David Binney, Josh Nelson, Larry Goldings, Alan Ferber, Joshua White, Sara Gazarek, Tim Lefebvre, Phillip Dizack, Jeff Babko, Dayna Stephens, Tigran Hamasyan, Walter Smith III, Anthony Wilson, Ben Wendel, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson and many others.
