Thoth Trio

Ben Opie // saxophones, clarinet
Paul Thompson // upright bass
David Throckmorton //drums

Labelled as "intense acoustic jazz", the players in Thoth Trio are at the center of a creative music scene in Pittsburgh, PA. All three have additionally participated in OPEK (Sun Ra-inspired big band), Flexure (electric improvisation and modular composition) and David Throckmorton Quartet (groove-based improvisations). Paul and David at one time formed the core rhythm section of the Maynard Ferguson Big Band; Paul later joined the last Stanley Turrentine Quartet. Ben and David cooperatively run Space Exchange, a weekly series featuring local and international creative musicians. Ben has recorded with Anthony Braxton and organized a festival of Braxton's music. Paul teaches at Pittsburgh's High School for the Creative and Performing Arts, and is artist in residence this year at Duquesne University. Ben teaches at Carnegie Mellon University.

SECOND SATURDAYS are the signature monthly jazz-happening series at The Space Upstairs. Happenings frequently feature new works from The Space Upstairs resident artists as well as impromptu collaborations with guest music, movement and visual artists.

Drop-in and stay for an undetermined amount of time, sit wherever you'd like, be in our space... This is our jazz.
