“I called the great French violinist Jean-Luc Ponty and I said ‘So, who’s the new cat? Who’s got the stuff? And he said Zach Brock.” —Stanley Clarke
Heralded as “the pre-eminent improvising violinist of his generation,” Zach Brock is an award-winning jazz violinist and composer whose music draws on the traditions of jazz, classical, world, and popular music. The Chicago Tribune recognized Zach’s latest recording ”Perpetuity” as one of it’s “top ten jazz recordings of 2014” and Downbeat Magazine’s 61st Annual Critics Poll named Zach it’s “Rising Star” Violinist of 2013.
“This is music of brisk intelligence and an almost off-putting abundance of composure… with frictionless access to great chunks of classical post-minimalism, atmospheric indie-rock and harmonically astute post-bop.”—New York Times
Chicago-based bassist/composer and bandleader Matt Ulery has developed an instantly recognizable sound. Known for his sweeping lyricism, unconventional phrase structures, expressionistic emotionalism, Ulery’s music is informed by the entire spectrum of jazz, classical, rock, pop, and folk– specifically American, South American, Balkan, and other European folk styles. He performs not only on upright and electric bass, but doubles on tuba.
“Jon Deitemyer is the drummer everybody wants right now…” —Patricia Barber
Jon Deitemyer has quickly earned his place among a new breed of creative, expressive jazz drummers. Mr. Deitemyer graduated summa cum laude from the esteemed University of North Texas and spent substantial time at the Banff Centre for the Arts. In only a short professional career, he has collaborated with Patricia Barber, Matt Ulery, Zach Brock, Grazyna Auguscik, Phil Markowitz, Ben Paterson, and countless others.
