Band bio

In 2017, having played the Slovenian  circuit for two years, the band put out 'Tja in spet nazaj' - 'There and  Back Again', a conceptual album dealing with the issues of what is  home, a wreath of impressions derived from personal experience of life  in migration. The album received positive response in the  media and with the general public. With the album's positive reception the  band's public presence needed to be developed, at which point Matjaž opted to  focus on classical composing and relegated his place in the spotlight.

In the winter of 2017, Janez Moder became the band's full time bassist. He is the original and  current member of one of Slovenia's most progressive bands Moonlight  Sky, as well as an extremely active session and live musician who's  played with Gal in Galeristi, Aritmija, Didiwa, Alkimia and has  collaborated with the likes of Severa Gjurin, Goran Bojčevski, Marko  Hatlak, to name but a few.
 

With the new blood the band took to  Slovenian stages, media outposts, and radio studios to present the  album nationwide, accumulating interest with the public. The hit song 'Never be the same'  (Nič ne bo kot je bilo) gained traction on radio stations.
 

In  November of 2018 the band was officially joined by academic violinist  Ana Mezgec, after she had appeared as a guest violinist, blowing the  audience away with her energetic and perfected playing style along with a  confident yet understated stage presence.
 

With two new  last names added to the roster of band members, the old name "Jarc Gregorin Trio"  no longer fit the four-piece. The band decided to slowly phase in a new designation: "JG3O". At first the two  names would be used side by side making JG3O the largest trio around;  the new name is set to take over with new songs and the publication of the  second full album.

Intervju Vklop, 6. Jun. 2018

Prvenec skupine Jarc Gregorin trio "počasi a vztrajno osvaja poslušalstvo."

Jutranji koncert s Karolijem, Radio Slovenia VAL 202, 23 May, 2018

Jarc Gregorin Trio (Moder je na basu) izhajajo iz songov, besede so  pomembne, prav tako glasba. Združeno, kot se spodobi, zveni odlično.  Tudi, ker ni na prvo žogo. Najlepše stvari se skrivajo v sodnikovem  podaljšku.

Recenzija Rockonnet 28. Feb. S. S. Šoba

... kilometrina pa se je v zasedbi sinergično povezala v ploščo, ki je že po  prvem posluhu zrel izdelek, a zveni tako, kot bi bil namenjen nekim  drugim časom in nekim drugim ter ne slovenskim prostorom. In tu je  privlačnost, tu je tisto »nekaj«, kar vsaj mene potegne in posrka do  samega centra in ne pusti pri miru, dokler se ne artikulira nekaj besed,  s katerimi bi lahko zmanjšal pritisk lebdenja v limbu.

"Jarc Gregorin Trio prinaša vrhunsko glasbo", Slovenske novice

"Na vsak način je slovenska glasbena scena z Jarc Gregorin Triom dobila  vrhunsko, avtorsko in izvirno glasbeno postavo. Čeprav premoremo veliko  vrhunskih zasedb, so le redke našle tako prepričljiv izraz..." Link

"(Ne)mirno popotovanje paketa – trojčka" SIGIC

"se te glasbe ne da žanrsko popredalčkati. Blues, ja. Ampak Leonard Cohen in Nick Cave ne pojeta bluesa, ne?" Link

JG Trio bill themselves as “Prog-blues”, and it’s a workable label for such a genre diverse album.

 JG Trio frontman Jaka Jarc’s baritone voice (imagine a smoother Nick Cave, but no less powerful) emphasises the highs and lows of TaBA excellently. Whether delivering soothing & carefree phrases on Storm Gathering and No Place like Home, right up to what feels like the lament-filled roar of Father Time himself on Leti and Time Flies, his vocals are a captivating vehicle for the lyrics, each image delivered as elegantly and confidently as any native English speaker would.

Receznija rockline.si, 30 Jan 2018, A. Podbrežnik

Resnično album, ki se dotakne srca in seže globoko v še tako skriti košček poslušalčeve duše in ga predrami.

... Temu kar počno Jarc Gregorin Trio na albumu »There and back again«, ni v naših logih nihče blizu.

... Jaka je izvrsten vokalni interpret, nasploh ob dejstvu, da mu angleški  jezik izjemno dobro teče in deluje tako interpretacija poezije tako v  metričnem smislu, glede na to, da govorimo o slovenski zasedbi, izredno  zgledno in prepričljivo. Bend je silno pretanjen. V svoji finosti (ali  imenitnosti,če vam je ljubše), gradi in stopnjuje vzdušja polagoma. Link

There and Back Again

Home on the way, jarc gregorin trio

What is Home?

The concept Album "There and Back Again" - "Tja in spet nazaj" explores all that  represents the concept 'home'. It was written as a reflection of the authors' residency between the UK and Slovenia, friendship stretching to the US, and family with the richness of two families. 

Genre is a Medium

The album makes  use of different genres to better communicate the emotion and subtext of the messages of individual songs. Its eclectic selection of original songs that truly defy labeling. In a way this is unfortunate because it is sometimes considered impractical in this day and age to transgress the limitations of genre; it makes it harder for the audience to find your music, but it makes for an interesting album and a colourful night out  

Language is a Medium

 The album is largely bilingual, because the main author spent time between the UK and his Slovenian home – hence the concept. Most of the songs exist in either language – in fact only two do not. The tour focuses on the English lyrics, but allows the audience a taste of the unique language that is Slovenian.
