3 X2 is the latest collaboration in the onging musical partnership of Kansas City natives Rob Whitsitt and Mike Thompson.

Studio work included scoring sessions for the Love Boat series plus numerous television films. Since their return to the midwest they have immersed themselves in the local scene working with a virtual who's who of Kansas City jazz including:Karryn Allison, David Basse, Megan Birdsall, Bob Bowman, Boulevard Big Band, Joe Cartwright, Millie Edwards, Danny Embrey, Rod Fleeman, Angela Hagenbach, Heat Index, Lisa Henry, Brian Hicks, Russ Long, Ida McBeth, Kevin Mahogany, Greg Meise, Neon Blue, Greg Richter, Kerry Strayer, Tim Whitmer, Rob Whitsitt, Bram Wijands, Lynn Zimmer and others. In 2011 Mike added electric bass to his arsenal while continuing to man the drums resulting in 3 X 2: a very unique combo which combines the intimacy and spontaneity of a duo with the rich full sound of a trio.
