For almost two decades, The Eric Byrd Trio, pianist/vocalist Eric Byrd, bassist Bhagwan Khalsa, and drummer Alphonso Young, Jr., have traveled the world as enthusiastic ambassadors of jazz. Rooted in swing and be-bop, The Trio also embraces gospel and the blues as core elements of their expansive performance style.

Collectively, they have played with many well known jazz musicians including trumpeters Wynton Marsalis and Randy Brecker,  guitarists Charlie Byrd and Mike Stern,  saxophonists Bob Berg, Buck Hill, David “Fathead” Newman, and Cecil Payne, and pianists George Colligan and Kenny Drew, Jr..
