3ology is a Colorado-based trio exploring the possibilities of improvisation and groove in an angular and fresh way.
Together, saxophonist Doug Carmichael (Mojomama, C Spot Groove), acoustic and electric bassist Tim Carmichael (C Spot Groove, Ryan Elwood Trio) and drummer Jon Powers (Matt Morris, Sanskrit) produce a paradoxical sound that is both avant-garde and melodic, edgy and spacious.
Members of the group draw on influences as diverse as Michael Brecker, Rush, Yellowjackets, Miles Davis, Living Colour, U2, John Coltrane, and Me'shell Ndegeocello.
All three musicians grew up and studied music in Colorado. Brothers Tim and Doug have been playing music together in various situations most of their lives and they have worked with Jon in various settings for the last 10+ years. In 2007 they came together to form 3ology.
3ology's recordings have received warm reception both nationally and internationally with radio play throughout the US, Canada, France, Australia, and the UK. The band's free improvisation mixed with genre-jumping grooves creates an “infectious” sound that is all their own.
