Roulette presents Thelonious Monk International
Saxophone Competition winner Jon Irabagon’s Threedom Trio, featuring
seasoned, accomplished master musicians Barry Altschul and Joe
Fonda. These three powerhouse performers bring a wealth of acclaim and
experience to the table with careers that have spanned the globe and
in the case of Altschul and Fonda, many successful generations.

The Jon Irabagon Threedom Trio incorporates the complete jazz lineage,
from rag time to no time. This all-inclusive approach utilizes
standards, changes, forms and melodies as well as noises, calls, cries
and sounds to create a sound that is both familiar and new
simultaneously. Altschul and Fonda’s longtime partnership in the FAB
Trio (with the late Billy Bang), coupled with Irabagon and Altschul’s
recent work together (Foxy, Hot Cup Records) leads to a cohesive unit
that explores proactive group interaction with both delicacy and fire.
