    Triocracy was formed in 1998 in Boston and continued to evolve through JC Sanford’s 16 years in New York City. The unconventional “chamber jazz” trio of trombone and 2 saxophones performs JC’s original works, collective improvisations, and often arrangements of music by diverse artists such as Stevie Wonder, Steven Sondheim, George Frideric Handel, Gerry Mulligan, and Billy Joel.
    After 16 years in New York City, MN native and trombonist/composer JC Sanford relocated to his home state in 2016. A long time student of the legendary Bob Brookmeyer, Sanford has performed as a trombonist along side the likes of Danilo Pérez, Matt Wilson, Bill Stewart, and Donny McCaslin. He was also recently selected as a “Rising Star” trombonist in DownBeat magazine’s 2017 Critic’s Poll. A sought-after conductor of new large ensemble music in NYC, he conducts the twice-Grammy-nominated John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble, Joel Harrison’s Infinite Possibility, and the Alice Coltrane Orchestra featuring Ravi Coltrane and Jack DeJohnette. His 2014 JC Sanford Orchestra album Views from the Inside won international acclaim and was awarded the prestigious Aaron Copland Fund for Recording. His compositions and arrangements have been performed by Dave Liebman, John Abercrombie, and Ingrid Jensen.

    Le Voyage is Donald Washington, Matt Trice, Dick Studer and Steve Hirsh. Their music is composed in the moment, with stories expressed through sound, spinning threads that become whole cloth. The vocabulary typically used to describe music created in this fashion (free jazz, avant garde) only obscures the essential nature and purpose of the music. The music is about diving directly into the molten core of our humanity, aiming to break apart the thick husks that separate us from ourselves and each other. To paraphrase Carlos Santana, the music will alter your molecular structure
