Formed in 2009 by three members of a Sun Ra Tribute Band, Triptet is a meeting of minds and spontaneous electrical impulses between Michael Monhart (saxophones and percussion), Tom Baker (guitars and effects), and Greg Campbell (percussion, french horn and cheap electronics). The trio has performed shows in New York and Seattle and was the headliner of the 2010 Boise Creative and Improvised Music Festival. They performed sold-out shows at the 2009 and 2010 Is That Jazz Festival, and most recently played at The Stone in NYC. They have opened for Elliott Sharp and The Nels Cline Singers. Triptet has released two albums: You Can See The Bottom (Present Sounds Recordings) and Imaginary Perspective (Engine Records).
