"The 3dom Factor is a group made up of drummer Barry Altschul, a veteran of highly influential groups with Paul Bley, Anthony Braxton, Chick Corea and Sam Rivers, among others; saxophonist Jon Irabagon, one of today's leading young players particularly known as the leader of his own groups and as a member of Mostly Other People Do the Killing; and bassist Joe Fonda, Altschul's companion in the FAB Trio (TUM 28) with late violinist Billy Bang, a veteran of Anthony Braxton's groups and a leader or co-leader of many of his own ensembles.

After its first album, The 3dom Factor (TUM 32), the trio has grown together as a true group through frequent performances. As a result, whereas the earlier album featured Altschul's compositions, their second album, Tales of the Unforeseen, focuses on collective improvisation. The new album was recorded in New York City following another Northeastern tour by the trio and was put together by Altschul as a suite of spontaneous improvisations and versions two borrowed compositions very familiar to Altschul from his past, Thelonious Monk's "Ask Me Now" and Annette Peacock's "Miracles"."-TUM


Artist Biographies:

"Barry Altschul (born January 6, 1943, New York City)[1] is a free jazz and hard bop drummer who gained fame in the late 1960s with the pianists Paul Bley and Chick Corea.

Altschul, having initially taught himself to play drums, studied with Charlie Persip during the 1960s. In the latter part of the decade, he performed with Paul Bley. In 1969 he joined with Chick Corea, Dave Holland and Anthony Braxton to form the group Circle. At the time, he made use of a high-pitched Gretsch kit with add-on drums and percussion instruments, which he integrated seamlessly in a whirlwind of sound.

In the 1970s Altschul worked extensively with Anthony Braxton's quartet featuring Kenny Wheeler, Dave Holland, and George Lewis. Braxton, signed to Arista Records, was able to secure a large enough budget to tour with a collection of dozens of percussion instruments, strings and winds. In addition to his participation in ensembles featuring avant-garde musicians, Altschul performed with Lee Konitz, Art Pepper and other "straight ahead" jazz performers.

Altschul also made albums as a leader, but after the mid-1980s he was rarely seen in concert or on record, spending much of his time in Europe. Since the 2000s, he has become more visible, with two sideman appearances on the CIMP label with the FAB trio (with Billy Bang and Joe Fonda), the Jon Irabagon Trio recording "Foxy", and the bassist Adam Lane. Altschul has played or recorded with many musicians, including Roswell Rudd, Dave Liebman, Barre Phillips, Denis Levaillant, Andrew Hill, Sonny Criss, Hampton Hawes, and Lee Konitz."-Wikipedia

Jon was also named 2012 Musician of the Year in The New York City Jazz Record and is an integral member of such high-profile ensembles as the Mary Halvorson Quintet, the Dave Douglas Quintet and Barry Altschul's 3Dom Factor, as well as an established bandleader in his own right.
