A saxophonist, a pianist and a bass player walk into a bar. But the bar happens to be one of the world's preeminent jazz clubs, where they're regularly sighted on stage. And they're working as a new collective band: no drummer, no hierarchy. So much for that joke.
Saxophonist Steve Wilson, pianist Renee Rosnes and bassist Peter Washington are among the most sought-after jazz musicians in New York City. They combine forces downtown for a week at the Village Vanguard — which in recent years has seen both Wilson and Rosnes lead bands there, and Washington back many a musician. WBGO and NPR Music featured the trio in this live online video webcast and radio broadcast.
