Album Notes
The Opus 3 trio has truly created its own sound and style. The piano has traditionally been the central focus of great jazz trios. Burkhart prefers to have all musicians in the group share equally in shaping the direction of the music through changes in tempo, mood, & texture.

This philosophy is ideally suited for this sophisticated trio because Jane, Jason and Seth possess superior talent as individuals while sounding equally great as a unit. For this reason, Burkhart feels that the music should be arranged to showcase that talent. When the bass and drums share equally in controlling both the tempo and the mood of a piece, while complimenting the piano, it creates a musical environment that magnifies the sound of the group on the stage than the traditional jazz trio.

Speaking of Jane, Seth says: \"I\'ve been in many bands over the years, and most of the time it feels like something is missing... Like, something else is needed to make the band sound whole. When I play with Jane the music sounds so full and complete. When we play, everything that happens just feels so right and I can’t imagine anything different.\"

The trio reads their music from their laptops, as a result, they do not use sheet music nor any books, this lessens the weight of luggage and is environmentally friendly. They are reading PDF files but when it comes time to solo, they can focus strictly on their improvisation. Their quick musical reflexes and creative imagination give the trio a style that is powerful, rhythmic, and free.
