Bassist, composer and professor of Harmony and Composition at Berklee, Rick McLaughlin is perhaps best known by Boston audiences for his long tenure with the adventurous “little big band” Either/Orchestra. He's also shared the stage with jazz luminaries such as Don Byron, Steve Lacy, John Medeski, Danilo Perez, and John Zorn, Ethiopian music legends Mulatu Astatke and Mahmoud Ahmed, rock musicians Willie “Loco” Alexander, Morphine and Peter Wolf, and country music star Roger Miller. These days, he can often be seen with Listen To This, a band paying sonic homage to Miles Davis' electric period, and with this stellar trio featuring fellow Berklee educators guitarist Sheryl Bailey and drummer Yoron Israel.

After many years in New York, Sheryl Bailey recently moved to Boston to serve as Assistant Chair of the guitar department at Berklee. While in Boston, she has performed with George Garzone, the Bob Nieske 6, Allan Chase, Noah Preminger and Jason Palmer. Her organ trio the Sheryl Bailey 3 has released several albums and has performed in China, Canada, Europe and the US. She has also toured and recorded with the Anat Cohen Tentet, Richard Bona, Lea Delaria, and David Krakauer.

Drummer Yoron Israel, chair of Berklee’s Percussion Department, has performed with a literal "who's who" of music, having accompanied everyone from Abbey Lincoln to Tony Bennett to Jimmy Heath to Pharoah Sanders. Locally, he leads his own projects and is frequently seen behind the kit for the Makanda Project. He also serves as Pastor of Music and Art at Destiny Life Center International in Randolph, MA.

Together, the three bring together their diverse musical interests, performing originals composed by each member of the group, drawing from Brazilian music, Latin jazz, gospel music, and the harmonic explorations of John Coltrane. Reaching beyond their original music, arrangements focus on a wide range of influences, from Stevie Wonder to John Scofield, Jim Hall to Duke Ellington and the mid-20th century American opera composer Carlisle Floyd. The result is music which is in the moment, of the time, incorporates music history, and connects deeply with audiences.
