Sue Alcorn

Alcorn has absorbed the technique of C&W pedal steel playing and refined it to a virtuosic level. Her original music reveals the influence of free jazz, avant-garde classical music, Indian ragas, Indigenous traditions, and other musics of the world.

Union Suit

Union Suit

Andrew Stern-- guitar
Jared Seabrook-- drums

Born from weekly Friday afternoon sessions over the course of many years, Union Suit sticks it straight in the vein! US plays from a purr to a roar, from “alt-country-freak-folk” and prog-rock improvisations to minimalist soundscapes, re-workings of Ayler, Monk and Mingus, cellular composition and….. well, you fill in the blank. We do not play weddings.

Danny Fox Trio

The NYC-based Danny Fox Trio plays genre-defying original music with dynamic group interplay. Almost a mix between a jazz trio, a chamber ensemble, and a rock group, the trio has developed a unique sound that departs from traditional jazz piano format and uses the roles of the instruments creatively. The music draws from eclectic influences: the quirky rhythms of a Thelonious Monk tune, the dark harmonies of Scriabin, the funkiness of a Motown bassline, or the catchiness of a Beatles tune.

Les Rhinocéros Quartet

"Hailing from the Washington, DC area, the young band Les Rhinocéros delivers a crazy world in sound, blending aspects of rock, world music, noise, ambient and jazz. The trio of teenagers was formed in 2008 while the players were still in high school, and has developed since then into an intense and wildly imaginative group that takes music to its extremes. Emotional, minimalistic, intense and grooving, this is music that goes beyond imagination to the edges of sanity.
