The Orange Mighty Trio is a local instrumental group from Minneapolis that features Zack Kline on violin, Nick Gaudette on double bass, and Mike Vasich on piano. Music of the Orange Mighty Trio (OMT) has been described by The City Pages as “maverick chamber music,” and is described by the band as their own genre: “bluegrassical.” OMT plays a variety of mostly original music, ranging from high-energy and virtuosic to subdued and beautiful. The new album, “Infrastructure,” is their second recording, and first full-length disc. The album features all original music written by the trio, inspired by a general theme of transportation and infrastructure. Their first recording, a self-titled EP released in 2007, is described by the Minneapolis Star Tribune as “…mountainy roots music with urban jazz and hints of classical, careening between beautiful, bold and a bit of bombast.” The Onion notes, “OMT meanders happily through jazz and chamber-music styles that would make the group equally at home playing the Dakota, guesting with the Minnesota Orchestra or playing at a county fair.”
