Three Miles Davis alumni and funk-feel-freaks, groovemeister and Rolling Stones’ bassist Darryl Jones,
master drummer Ndugu Chancler, and keyboardist John Beasley,
join forces to form 3 Brave Souls and baptize classic jazz flavorings with
contagious, penetrating funk grooves with honey dew sounds of southern soul.
Jumping into the box are soul songstress Sy Smith and cosmic improviser Dwight Trible.

Groove-meister of the highest order bassist Darryl Jones has been omnipresence in high-profile jazz, pop, and rock gigs, including 5 years with Miles Davis, Rolling Stones since 1993, and time with Michael Jackson, Madonna, Sting, Eric Clapton and Peter Gabriel. This personal project 3 Brave Souls feature Jones’ compositions and his husky vocals.
The pulsating funk beats on Michael Jackson’s Billie Jean could only be Ndugu Chancler. An inventive drummer and consummate time-and rhythm-keeper, Ndugu, has performed with Santana, Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, George Duke, and Weather Report, among others. Chancler contributed four songs to 3 Brave Souls CD and even some spoken words of wisdom!
Grammy-nominee John Beasley started his music career touring with Freddie Hubbard for 8 years and with his garage band (Vinnie Colauita+John Patittuci). At 28, Miles Davis took him on tour. Beasley went on to perform and record with Steely Dan (MD), Dianne Reeves, Christian McBride, Chaka Khan, Kenny Garrett, Queen Latifah (MD), LA Philharmonic, and James Brown’s final LA concert, to list a few. Beasley composed five songs, two with soul songstress Sy Smith.
Songstress Sy Smith can be seen daily on The Tonight Show. She joins the band to sing on the songs she co-wrote. Vocalist Dwight Trible lifts the songs with his cosmic improvisations.
