Livestream performance of U.S.E. Trio  @ Facebook and Youtube
Join us for a livestream of the Philadelphia-based U.S.E. Trio! U.S.E. Trio formed in late 2017. Their affinity for improvising over unique, and often improvised, musical forms is what inspired the project. Each member contributes original compositions to the band’s ever-growing repertory. The band hosts a monthly concert series in Philadelphia, known as the “Creative Concepts in Jazz Series”, whereupon they consistently workshop new compositions and arrangements. U.S.E. Trio is represented by Ukrainian record label, LabelWhoAble. This program is sponsored by the Art Bridges Foundation.  Watch Promo.
