    Whenever i hear the term "Power Trio" it is usually used about a guitar/bass/drums or keyboard/bass/drums trio playing especially "big sounding", loud and complex music like Cream, EL&P, Hendrix etc. But what is NOT a Power Trio? Is it mainly about the group attitude, or does it have to do with amplification?
