In the spring of 2009, three Los Angeles musicians began meeting on a weekly basis. At first the goal was simply to play through songs from the "Real Books" for their own musical practice and pleasure. Before long, a musical chemistry between the three began to emerge that was concrete and unique. A "band sound" if you will, was present regardless of which tune they played. They soon began to compose their own material, drawing upon the classic elements of the jazz masters of the past, as well as the sounds of the "new school" of jazz incorporating modern funk, world rhythms of reggae and afro-cuban, as well as the futuristic sounds of electronica. Gigging routinely throughout the city at many venues firmly established in the jazz scene (Cafe Cordiale, Nola's, Baked Potato, OC Fair, etc.) has only enhanced the band chemistry while building an ever-increasing following. In 2011, Oui' 3 released their self-titled debut cd. A collection of 13 original songs ranging in style from straight-ahead jazz to funk and world beat. They performed extensively throughout southern California in support of the release. Fast forward to 2012 and we have the trio's latest offering, a 4 song EP simply called "Oui' 3 EP". This release has the band venturing into the world of "contemporary jazz" with catchy melodies and groovy rhythms sure to find its way onto the airwaves of modern jazz and R&B radio stations alike.
