The trio will play an entire set of fully improvised music from start to finish. We will draw influence from the music of Albert Ayler, Joe Morris, Ornette Coleman, Cecil Taylor and Tony Malaby. We truly wish that you enjoy the trip.

Jonathan Milberger was born in Omaha, Nebraska. Moving across the country in his youth due to his father’s own career in music, Jonathan eventually settled in the small Appalachian city of Roanoke, Virginia, where he spent his teenage years. There he was inspired to take up the saxophone, after learning clarinet, in order to join his middle school, and later his high school, jazz band. During his first year of high school he decided to pursue music full-time and soon after his graduation received a scholarship to move to New York City and study music at The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music. Functioning equally as a composer and performer, Jonathan’s musical influences range from composers such as Beethoven, Bach, Ravel, Mozart and The Beatles, to improvisors such as Sonny Rollins, Albert Ayler, Cecil Taylor and John Coltrane. Jonathan is on track to receive a bachelor's degree in Jazz Saxophone from The New School in May of 2019.
