Bermuda Triangle

"When I met Tom Toyama, who is so incredibly creative, I remember having an out-of-body experience and not knowing how to get back,"

Robert Thomas Jr. percussionist of Zawinul Syndicate, Weather Report, Stan Getz, and many others

"The name Bermuda Triangle symbolizes the mysterious, hypnotic state Robert Thomas Jr. hopes his listeners will enter when they hear the music. "When I met Tom Toyama, who is so incredibly creative, I remember having an out-of-body experience and not knowing how to get back," he (Robert Thomas Jr.) guffaws. The group has no written, pre-rehearsed songs. Only the rhythms Thomas creates are memorized; the music's harmonic elements are entirely improvised. And forget about a set list; the trio develops melodies on the spot based on one-word themes written by Thomas."
