One word. Purple. Duane Simpson, Jesse Gentry, and Jian-Claude Mears, make up the Asheville, NC instrumental, power trio that is known as Purple. This trio takes an eclectic range of popular music from the jazz, blues, funk, soul, and pop idioms and blends it into a unique style and sound that is all their own. Their show will soothe you, rock you, challenge you, and make you wanna move.
