The Jorge Arana Trio is Jorge Arana, Josh Enyart, and Jason Nash. They were formed in 2011 from the sparks of several progressive outfits, including noise-rock band Pixel Panda, psychedelic rock group Various Blonde, and other jazzcore endeavors. The trio aptly links their individual and collective pasts and futures, colliding in an avant-garde geometry of rock, jazz, classical, punk, electronic, experimental, and incidental music. The Jorge Arana Trio has built a reputation as a gem within the Kansas City music scene and beyond. Their unique stylistic blend continues to turn the heads of diverse crowds.

Jorge Arana Trio’s latest offering, Mammoth, marks their third release and second full-length. Mammoth is a sophisticated blend of sounds and structures that challenges expectations, pushing the art rock genre into the world of progressive music with jazz fusion and math rock elements. Building on previous albums Mapache and Oso‘s use of playful genuine interaction in the patterned riffs and rhythms, Mammoth ups the ante by incorporating a tense and dark mood across the entire album. “Speak, Beast” sets the tone, casting a menacing shadow of distorted lead guitar over brooding keyboard pads and drums that sound more tribal than belonging in a rock band. With Mammoth, the listener gets the feel that they are in an epoch not their own – they are in a world of gnashing tusks, embattlement, and ultimately survival. Recorded in early 2016 by Justin Wilson at Sound 81 Productions, the album marks a new place and time in the Jorge Arana Trio‘s musical endeavors. Mammoth finds its digital release on Friday September 23rd, 2016. Mammoth 12-Inch vinyl is now available for pre-order. Limited edition copies of the LP are released on silver vinyl. The vinyl officially hits stores on Friday October 14th, 2016, with pre-ordered copies being delivered early.

Jorge Arana Trio’s EP Oso was released on Haymaker Records in July 2014 to a worldwide positive response. The limited edition purple copies of the album are now SOLD OUT.

    The Jorge Arana Trio is Jorge Arana, Josh Enyart, and Jason Nash. They were fused in 2011 from the sparks of noise-rock band, Pixel Panda, and other jazzcore endeavors, including Various Blonde. The trio aptly links their individual and collective pasts and futures, colliding in an avant-garde geometry of rock, jazz, classical, punk, electronic, experimental, and incidental music. Jorge Arana Trio’s latest release, Oso, harkens back to times before the trio found themselves together and propels the current calculations of the band. The Oso EP will be the group’s second release but first on Haymaker Records. With origins stemming pre-trio, Oso carries with it doses of nostalgia, surf rock, horror film sounds, and the persistence of sophisticated perplexity. Mapache, Jorge Arana Trio’s debut album released in October 2012, hints to Oso with its urgency and darkness. The new release maintains a louder, more aggressive and tonal labyrinth of sound, focused with driving guitars and minimal keys. In November 2012, the group released a split-single with experimental group, Ambulants. Jorge Arana Trio’s unification of past favorites with contemporary direction results in Oso.
