Trio (Porter, Vidacovich, Yamagishi)

"For nearly three years, Johnny Vidacovich and George Porter Jr. have been inviting musicians to team up with them as a trio. Backed by two of New Orleans premiere musicians (I am very hesitant to call them a rhythm section--they are much more than that), the revolving third slot has been filled by a Who's Who of New Orleans, including Eric Traub (Dr. John), Mark Mullins (Mulebone, Harry Connick Jr.), Tony Degradi (Astral Project), John Gros (Papa Grows Funk), Nicholas Payton, Clarence Johnson III (Runnin Pardners), Brian Stoltz (funky Meters), Tab Benoit, and David Torkanowsky (Astral Project), as well as non-New Orleanian Luther Dickinson (North Mississippi Allstars). Most often, and according to Porter most comfortably, the slot has been filled by June Yamagishi (Papa Grows Funk). When Yamagishi joins Porter and Vidacovich, it's not just a trio--it's The Trio" - Jeffrey P. Dupuis (Jambase.com)
