About RPM Jazz Trio:
Jazz guitarist/arranger/composer Tony Corman is a proponent of M3 guitar, a symmetrical system of tuning introduced in 1964 by jazz guitarist Ralph Patt. The M3 system opens the door to a set of beautiful sonorities that are unavailable or impractical with conventional tuning, and Tony exploits this system to reinvent and enrich both classic favorites by Ellington and Gershwin as well as hidden jazz and bossa-nova jewels.
