Music du Jour

In August of 2006, with the backdrop of the Rockies to inspire them, the Matt Flinner Trio (Matt
Flinner (mandolin), Ross Martin (guitar), and Eric Thorin (bass)) threw down a challenge to one
another: write a new tune each day while on tour and perform it that evening. The first gig was at a
small art gallery in Salt Lake City and barring a frantic evening of photocopying and rehearsing, the
show was a success. The players continued with their daily musical challenge, giving birth to the
concept of the “Music du Jour” tours and later the Music du Jour album. Between Flinner, Martin, and
Thorin, over sixty new tunes were composed during three western US tours, and in December 2008
the trio committed the twelve best to record at the Compass Sound Studio. With Music du Jour the
Matt Flinner Trio sets a new standard for the bluegrass trio sound and creative output.

"Matt Flinner's latest ensemble, a
wonderful all-acoustic trio, can be
counted on to produce fresh-minted
sounds and satisfyingly inspired
compositions, and their latest CD is no
exception........It's hard to get bored with three musical voices
as brilliant - and brilliantly together - as these."  -Net Rhythms
