Clarinetist Ben Goldberg , pianist/keyboardist Michael Coleman , and drummer Hamir Atwal came together in the innovative jazz and experimental music world of the San Francisco Bay Area. Eventually they found it necessary to form this trio, which for some reason may or may not be called Invisible Guy.
As a trio, Ben, Michael, and Hamir are in strict pursuit of beautiful melody. Michael Coleman says: “Melody is the knife that cuts through to truth. Then there is the importance of breath, and personal expression.” Reviewing a 2014 concert, Howard Reich of the Chicago Tribune said the group is "an unusually focused ensemble inventing a musical syntax for itself."
