But with their staggering technique and freewheeling genre-crossing, it's hard not to be swept up in the force of their contagious energy.

Time For Three.
April 7, 2010 A self-described jam band which draws heavily on classical and folk influences, Time for Three was formed in 2002 by three students attending Philadelphia's Curtis Institute of Music. The group is composed of two violinists (Zachary De Pue and Nicolas Kendall) and a double-bassist (Ranaan Meyer), all of whom have a taste for improvisational jazz. Their third studio album is 3 Fervent Travelers.

September 8, 2008 With a love of bluegrass and jazz, Time for Three started along its improvisational way by re-crafting classical favorites (like Bach's Concerto for Two Violins), and has continued to grow and compose its own music. In "Philly Phunk," it pays tribute to its hometown.

August 4, 2006 Three young men who play classical music most of the time needed an outlet for their other musical endeavors, so they formed a trio called Time for Three. Performance Today takes a classical detour with them into a pair of tunes written by bass player Ranaan Myer.
