The Pan-American Trio is a newly formed instrumental ensemble dedicated to performing different styles of music from the Americas and to exploring the connections between them. The group's eclectic repertoire includes jazz, blues, bluegrass, Brazilian samba and bossa nova, Afro-Cuban music, tango, and other idioms—all rendered anew through exciting arrangements and by the spirit of improvisation common to all these musics.
