Trio Flux is the collaborative effort of three talented Portland musicians, Neil Mattson, Julio Appling, and Adam Ochshorn. The trio brings together a wide array of musical moods and textures, stretching the bounds of the traditional guitar-bass-drums jazz trio. Trio Flux, as the name suggests, adeptly moves through its funky grooves, its dark and distorted rock gestures, to its twangy free-jazz improvisations with a focus on musical dialogue between the three. The band strives to have a unique sound but doesn’t deny its influences. Guitarist Neil Mattson’s compositions betray his listening habits, Ornette Coleman, Bill Frisell, Herbie Hancock, Charlie Haden, and Pat Metheny, to name a few.
