"The definition of a power trio matches the sacred triad of rock: guitar, bass and drums, from the Jimi Hendrix Experience to Rush, from Paralamas do Sucesso to Pata de Elefante, power trios bequeath a feeling of mobility and self-sufficiency. This autonomy is one of the overtones found in the Hard Blues Trio"
