John Funkhouser Trio
"Each musician has technique to burn (and there are moments when they let it rip) but they're also extremely musical. The John Funkhouser Trio is often wildly inventive and great fun to watch and listen to - they can also play with grace and sweetness." (Middletown Eye)

"One can't help but notice the assured individuality of the musicians' work, each member of the Trio complementing the others for synergistically effective results." (Cadence Magazine)

"The styles and moods of this accomplished, often spellbinding collection range far and wide.distinctive in its extremes" (Boston Globe).

The John Funkhouser Trio is a band of Musicians without Borders. With influences as wide ranging as Woody Guthrie, Thelonious Monk, Frank Zappa, Frederic Chopin, and Ravi Shankar, the Trio "employs complex rhythms, deep soulful moments, rock and passion and sensitivity." (-Bebop Spoken Here). Each of Funkhouser's expansive compositions inhibits a unique universe, while the band seamlessly integrates composed music with improvisation into "a whirling dervish of sound and light." (Bop-n-Jazz.com)

The JFT began to take shape in 2000, soon after Funkhouser moved to Boston from NYC to take a teaching job at Berklee College of Music. John, (playing bass), met Mike Connors and they immediately understood they had a common musical vision.  They soon became the rhythm section in the Pierre Hurel Trio, Jerry Sabatini's Sonic Explorers, and other bands.  Soon after Greg Loughman moved to town in 2001, he became the bassist with the Sonic Explorers and John moved to keyboards.  This musical friendship was a match made in heaven.  The rhythm section formed a new Boston incarnation of the John Funkhouser Trio, and began playing all over the Northeast to enthusiastic audiences. After playing for several years and recording the CD Time as a tightly knit trio, John invited another good friend, Sonic Explorers guitarist Phil Sargent, to make it a quartet.  Bonded by years of friendship, two CDs as a trio and countless CDs as rhythm section with various leaders, the trio now feels like a single organism more than a band of individual virtuosos.
