AMC Trio is a Slovak piano trio; although, while it is true the trio is Slovak, it is less true that it is always a piano trio and, quite often, it is not even a trio... In any case what is true is that it is a grouping of three musicians with the best worldwide jazz contacts: Randy Brecker, Philip Catherine, Bill Evans, Ulf Wakenius, Mark Whitfield, Michael ‘Patches’ Stewart and many others have joined forces with AMC Trio either as special guests at their concerts or as collaborators in the studio. 
This incredible ensemble which built its musical foundation in mainstream jazz has been around for about twenty years.
