Joe Davidian Trio
The Joe Davidian Trio (“JD3”) is an American jazz trio comprised of some of the nation’s hottest up-and-coming young lions. Bandleader and pianist Joe Davidian lives in New York City where he performs regularly with many of the greatest names in jazz, including appearances with jazz legends Chester Thompson, Ira Sullivan, Joe Lovano, and Duffy Jackson. Davidian’s passion for jazz education has landed him professorships at University of Vermont, Belmont University and Middle Tennessee State University, and he also maintains an active roster of private piano students in NYC.
Bassist Dr. Jamie Ousley, voted “Best South Florida Jazz Musician of 2011,” is Professor of Jazz Bass at Florida International University in Miami, FL.
Austin McMahon, JD3’s drummer, has released two albums under his own name, and teaches jazz improvisation at Harvard University and at New England Conservatory in Boston, MA.
The Joe Davidian Trio performs a mix of original works and jazz standards. They have been touring internationally since 2000, presenting concerts and giving masterclasses on improvisation and ensemble playing. In 2008, JD3 released the critically acclaimed album “Silent Fire,” featuring each trio members’ compositions. JD3 has since released two live albums, Live at the Jazz Cave: Volumes One and Two, which document a six-year span of performances at the Nashville Jazz Workshop.
