About:

3ology is group based in Longmont Colorado. Formed in 2007 with a focus on improvised jazz in the same spirit as artists like Ornette Coleman, the group went on to release three studio recordings: 3ology (self titled), Out of the depths, and 3ology with Ron Miles, all of which can still be obtained online. Out of this material came a newly discovered archive of unreleased live recordings.
If you missed out on hearing the group live this is your opportunity to get the up-close listening experience of 3ology at it’s best! Note: the new releases include some new , never heard, unrecorded songs (unless your came to our gigs). The group would like to extend a huge thanks all of those who have supported this music over the years and we hope you enjoy these new live releases!

Peace and Harmony!
