Tenor Triage is a contemporary, freewheeling spin on the classic three tenors format, featuring the saxophonic voices of James Brandon Lewis, Sean Sonderegger, and Michael Eaton. The band's approach combines free jazz, funk, swing, and contemporary composition with a focus on the contrasting and complementary tenor voices.
The ensemble first performed May 4, 2017 with Calvin Weston on drums and the late Bern Nix on guitar. Tenor Triage has a studio recording in production, featuring the rhythm team of Brad Jones (bass) and Calvin Weston (drums) playing all original music by Eaton, Sonderegger, and Lewis. It is tentatively scheduled for release in 2019.
