(noun) A rock band consisting of three musicians, usually a guitarist, a bassist and a drummer. This common power trio format was developed in the 1960s by Cream and the Jimi Hendrix Experience and continues to be popular today. Often emphasis is placed on the technical skill of the individual members of the power trio. Hence many power trios are known for their extended instrumental breaks during live performance.
Nirvana were a power trio.
