3ioMusik (trio music) is a one time recording project featuring the trio of saxophonist Jeff Coffin, drummer Tom Giampietro (aka Tommy G) and guitarist Mel Deal. What you hear is a beautiful collaboration between three friends that is both visceral and highly accessible.
3iomusik began as a series of duets between Jeff & Tom in Coffin’s basement after they met at a jam session in Nashville, TN. Eventually deciding they wanted to expand the music further by adding a chordal player, Mel Deal, one of Nashville’s legendary guitarists, was asked to work his magic with them. The result is a sophisticated and earthy journey of sound, melody, texture, and emotion – like three artists painting on the same canvas and not getting in each others way.
We hope you enjoy this project as much as we do.
