Time for Three have called themselves a “classically trained garage band,” but even that anomalous label doesn’t begin to cover the unique quality of the group.
The ensemble, comprised of two violins and a double bass, maintains a diverse repertoire in jazz, bluegrass, classical and even contemporary pop. Known for their innovative and eclectic arrangements, the group has garnered cross-generational appeal for their superlative sound, skill, and inventive approach.
In their own words
“Ultimately, I’d love to see a world where categories are shattered, eliminated,” says bassist Raanan Meyer. “We like to have fun with all kinds of pieces and make them into something that’s uniquely Tf3. The cool thing is that we’re not cutting off the leg of a sculpture. We’re just changing it up for our purpose.”
“Our common ground is classical music and each one of us brought a different genre to the table. What was really unique was we were able to teach each other some of the influences from those other genres, respectively.”
