TRIO

The Mark Boling TRIO originated in Knoxville, Tennessee, several decades ago, soon after guitarist Mark Boling began teaching jazz at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. The TRIO'S drummer, Keith Brown, and bassist Jon Hamar are also UT jazz faculty members. Performing together in many styles and contexts—New Orleans, blues, rock, funk, free, fusion, bop, and big band—the trio has been blessed to play regularly with great musicians like Donald Brown, Gregory Tardy, Jerry Coker, Zim Ngqawana and the Knoxville Jazz Orchestra. This wealth of shared performance and teaching experience influences their ongoing musical conversation. Over the years, Boling has honed a repertoire of original music and standards with roots in the great guitar trios led by Kenny Burrell, Wes Montgomery, Jim Hall, John Scofield and Pat Metheny.
