JD3 is a fantastic jazz trio with all the national and international credits you can imagine. The idea is to get back to melody more in jazz. Austin McMahon (drums), Joe Davidian (piano), and Jamie Ousley (bass). It’s about new melodies for those who crave hummable tunes and what future sounds can be made by remembering.
The Joe Davidian Trio (“JD3”) is an American jazz trio that has performed internationally as a group for nearly 20 years. Bandleader and pianist Joe Davidian is the recent winner of the prestigious 2019 Jacksonville Jazz Piano Competition. He lives in New York City where he performs with many of the greatest names in jazz, quickly gaining recognition as a major player in the world’s foremost jazz scene. Davidian’s passion for jazz education has landed him professorships at University of Vermont, Belmont University and Middle Tennessee State University, as well as the Nashville Jazz Workshop. He also maintains an active roster of private piano students in New York.
Bassist Dr. Jamie Ousley, voted “Best South Florida Jazz Musician of 2011,” is Professor of Jazz Bass at Florida International University in Miami, FL.
Austin McMahon, JD3’s drummer, has released two albums under his own name, and teaches jazz improvisation at Harvard University and at New England Conservatory in Boston, MA.
The Joe Davidian Trio performs a mix of original works and jazz standards. They have been touring internationally since 2000, presenting concerts and giving masterclasses on improvisation and ensemble playing. In 2008, JD3 released the critically acclaimed album “Silent Fire,” featuring each trio members’ compositions. JD3 has since released two live albums, Live at the Jazz Cave: Volumes One and Two, which document a six-year span of performances at the Nashville Jazz Workshop.
