A modern neo-soul big band whose style reflects our digital zeitgeist

Our modern culture of non-stop information transfer influences this set of songs flowing, one style into the next, mirroring the chemistry of this eclectic band.

To open, a trio of instrumentalists featuring Karl Lawskowski, Yutaro Okuda and Chris Fields push the boundaries of contemporary improvised music while dipping into rock, jazz and groove.
