The Vitality Three is dedicated to performing and recording authentic 1920s jazz in the original “piano trio” format. This often-neglected repertoire ranges from Scott Joplin’s rags and Jelly Roll Morton’s famous trio performances to new explorations of the clarinet styles of  masters of the period such as Jimmy Lytell and Johnny Dodds. The Vitality Three are committed to the preservation and unstoppable energy of the clarinet/piano/drums trio at its most stomping.
