The Aeroplane Trio was formed in 2001 out of the late night "Aeroplane" improvisation sessions at the Sugar Refinery in Vancouver during a time of great experimental music activity on the West Coast music scene. Each member of the Aeroplane Trio has been championing original creative music for more than a decade, both as leaders and as sidemen. Some of the other groups that they also perform with include the Tony Wilson 6tet, Inhabitants, Fond of Tigers, and the NOW Orchestra. The Aeroplane Trio is a link, even a cornerstone in some instances, to Vancouver’s creative music community.
The trio has performed for several years at the Vancouver International Jazz Festival. Highlights from these performances include a double-bill with Dave Douglas' Mountain Passages and a collaboration with European improviser Wolfgang Fuchs. In addition to this, the trio has been featured in the New Orchestra Workshop's "Live at the Cellar" music series and Coastal Jazz and Blues' Winterruption festival.
