Michael T. A. Thompson: sound rhythium (aka drummer), composer 
Cooper-Moore: piano, multi-instrumentalist, composer
Ken Filiano: bass, composer

The New York based and the new Trio Plex consisting of Michael T.A. Thompson, Cooper Moore and Ken Filiano who have been listening, creating and deconstructing music separately for many decades-they continue to influence the 
direction of Jazz- have decided to combine forces to reach new dimensions for the drums, piano and bass.

The Trio began with a longing to hear something different, and together they hope to create new levels of flexibility and enjoyment to the typical bass, drums and piano format. As musicians they always thrive for new horizons and in this situation we put it into action as a collective thought process. Each individual will attempt to manifest his own thinking in the midst of everyone else's and as a result will transmit a new place of succession. The music will involve some form, some free and some dissonance.

They are excited about this new trio and look forward to sharing new liberating, rhythmic, creative, and exceptional music in new horizons…

"…Drummer drummer Thompson couldn't be a more correct choice to give fire to the music comprising "Dreams From a Clown Car." Another remarkable achievement."-Clean Feed Records.

"What is this...? An absolutely new way in the approach of jazz! ... This is free jazz with a high level of joy in the performance but also of fun in the music itself : rhythmic complexities, some hard blowing at times, and especially the incredible interplay on these short yet to-the-point pieces. review of the eponymous album.

Ken Filiano: "Critics have called him a 'creative virtuoso,' a 'master of technique' …"a paradigm of that type of artist. . . who can play anything in any context and make it work, simply because he puts the music first and leaves peripheral considerations behind
