In addition, the trio has discovered a way to transcend ordinary unity! You can find the trio disguised, with Kelvin Pittman and Matthew Voga, as Super Unity!

Version 1:

We are spies sent from a foreign land to learn secrets. We squeeze ideas until they squeal.

Version 2:

We play freely improvised music, relying on each other and our ears to guide us into fruitful & useful conversation. No plans, no agreements; no structures exist to catch us if we fall. We are both light-hearted and life-serious, because this music is like the air we wish to breath. We are known for relishing unusual performance situations: playing outdoors, at open-mic nights, in stairwells, on bicycle rikshaws, in inflatable plastic bubbles, public parks, busy intersections, and rock clubs. We also tend to avail ourselves of a variety of performative behaviors, as they occur to us. In our improvisations we are like spheres balancing on spheres, actively conversing with/reacting to each other and telling our own truest stories in our original voices.

Bryan Eubanks plays alto saxophone and percussion. He is also known as 1/2 of the duo Beds, and as the de facto leader of Fighting and Breeding. Jean-Paul (JP) Jenkins plays electric guitar, guitar synth, and alto clarinet. He has played with Peevish, Mantonal, and the Gringo Stars, and was previously known for his work in the jaja quartet. Joe Foster plays cornet and percussion, and is a participant in Peevish.

It’s times and it’s lives -right

gazing enough to go or to coax to rejoin

Must have had whale but I awaken to Acid

What of Bashful Septuagenarian? Try to start
and you will have origami, some pure gut

Really quite thrilling a dance routine, lit

set on stun and do time. The dreams tarnish
when I feel like it. But each gun I see brings
remembrances of my days teaching to the elderly.
Critics of the current arts and crafts make

dark and squirted, no scraped navel. Right off.
They arrived, all they asked for was wad of
lint, mellifluous.

Joe Foster cornet, percussion
Joe has an ideal of which he is only partially conscious, but it has a great influence on his psychology. He must preserve his integrity and purity. Even though he may not be aware of it, he is often preoccupied with this question: How can he live in this world and remain true to himself? This is the eternal philosophic dilemna. Joe has developed a solution, however; he elaborates a fairly strict code of conduct and tries to obey it as much of possible. The path he walks in life is straight and narrow. He yearns f......reflects the ideal he has set for himself, as free as possible from irrational mysteries and human failings. If this may sometimes seem a bit rigid, a bit lacking in perspective, it is because his mind understands the m....the microcosm, and he must observe the completed system before he sill form is opinion. He is a.......sorting and choosing, because his mind is like a filter. It rejects the impurities and only accepts the ....

Jean-Paul Jenkins Soloist
An extroverted intuitive (to use C.G. Jung's terms), Jean-Paul is open to the reality of the world. Objects and their meanings hold a special duality in his mind, which contains equal parts of intellectual resources and sensitivity, intuition and humanism. As a function of this latter, he has a great sense of his fellow man, and the origin of people's unconscious wishes and motivations - in fact, his advice is often sought. Overall, Jean-Paul is renowned for his solos and ability to solo and continue soloing. He welcomes the signs arriving, and even incites them to promise more than they can provide. If something does not satisfy him, he has the ability to cheer himself up rapidly, and is quick to discover what positive aspects it may present. This involves a process of readaptation which requires formidable ego transformation. Jean-Paul is usually seen as an idealist. Jean-Paul has played in numerous contexts with and without the aid of electricity. He has also made appearances at locations from the squalid to the sublime, adding more or less than was necessary, depending. He has been scratched in the eye for his clarinet playing. He also flunked guitar in college with Shep Richards in spite of assurances that he was a very talented player.

The Foster/Jenkins/Eubanks Trio is a hobby group, and the players consider themselves to be not just hobbyists, but strident advocates of hobbyism proper. The Trio has performed extensively on mainstream media sources in the Northwest, as well as more traditional "clubs," "bars," and "festivals" concerned with this music. In addition, the trio spends countless hours performing on the streets of cities and towns big and small.
