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.
