The initial musical connection between saxophonist Mark Turner and pianist Ethan Iverson was made in 1990s jam sessions in New York City, with both going on to individual success – Iverson in hit trio The Bad Plus and Turner as a solo leader and in such groups as the trio Fly (recording in both capacities for ECM). A decade after their first meeting, the saxophonist and pianist began an association in the Billy Hart Quartet, the two players featuring sympathetically on two widely lauded ECM albums by that band.

Logan Richardson "blues PEOPLE"

Blues People was created in the oral tradition of the blues, and improvised music as a whole. The viscous entirety of the 14 song repertoire was relayed all by ear during the process of the documentation of the album.

Blues People is a modern-day version of the Kansas City Blues, Black American Music, and Rock & Roll tradition. In being such, consequently this documentation is an accumulation of experiences, and influences that have given way to a fresh sonic fusion of sound that calls on the genetic DNA of the forefathers of modern popular music

Concert Review: "Kneebody"

Sep 30, 2018

Ambient. Ethereal. Haunting. Dissonant. Dreamy.

Live at Dazzle playing cuts from their newest album “Anti-Hero,” Kneebody transcends and melds genres simultaneously, incorporating elements of Funk, Hip-Hop, Soul and even a dash of Metal at times.

Each measure of music is a whirlwind of sonic texture, overtaking the bodily sense, transporting the audience to a place otherworldly.
