A 3 Leg Torso concert takes the listener on a musical travelogue equally embracing the high energy of pop/rock, the complex structures of chamber music, and the improvisational qualities of jazz. Influenced by tango, Eastern European folk and other world music traditions, 3 Leg Torso’s cosmopolitan musical style flaunts wit and humor while holding true to their belief that their music should be laced with sublime and uncommon beauty. Since the ensemble's humble start more than 14 years ago with spontaneous street performances -- called “Meestering” they have been featured on National Public Radio's "All Things Considered" and at the San Luis Obispo Mozart Festival, successfully toured the east and west coasts, released five CDs (composed and recorded film and documentary scores, written new evening length works commissioned by the Portland Institute of Contemporary Art (PICA) and performed their original music with several symphony orchestras and in a headlining performance at The Getty Center in Los Angeles.
