Selections by Michael Coleman, Ben Goldberg, and Steve Lacy.

 

 

 

From 1992, when his group​ New​ ​K​lezmer Trio​ released ​Masks and Faces and "kicked open the door for radical experiments with Ashkenazi roots music" (SF Chronicle) to 2013’s simultaneous release of ​Subatomic Particle Homesick Blues (featuring Jo​ shua Redman) and U​ nfold Ordinary Mind (featuring Nels Cline), which the New York Times noted for “a feeling of joyous research into the basics of polyphony and collective improvising,” clarinetist and composer ​Ben Goldberg ​has shaped a career through relentless pursuit of musical truth across many genres and styles, resulting in the Downbeat Critics’ Poll naming him the #1 Rising Star Clarinetist in both 2011 and 2013. In 2015 Ben released a recording of his song­cycle ​Orphic Machine,​ sung by Carla Kihlstedt and performed by an all­star nine piece band including Nels Cline, Greg Cohen, and Ches Smith. The LA Times called Orphic Machine “knotted and occasionally spooky composition marked by dazzling interplay.” All Music Guide says "Orphic Machine is wildly ambitious and sophisticated, but also graceful, emotionally honest, and accessible. It makes the profound embraceable and, as a result, is a masterpiece." Ben currently composes for and leads the following groups: Unfold Ordinary Mind​; G​ o Home​; B​ en Goldberg School;​ and B​ en Goldberg Trio​ with Greg Cohen and Kenny Wollesen.

 

Drummer/Percussionist ​Hamir Atwal​ is a Berklee College of Music graduate who has taught at Music Academy International, and the Stanford Jazz Workshop. Hamir is an active endorser of DREAM Cymbals. Hamir has played with saxophonists Joe Lovano, Greg Osby, and Grant Stewart; Bassist/Producer Bill Laswell; and clarinetist Ben Goldberg.

 

Michael Coleman​ is a pianist, improviser and composer currently residing in Brooklyn, NY. He has had the pleasure of playing with many great musicians and recording with some of his favorite bands and people. Apart from leading his own groups (Beep!, CavityFang, Young Nudist), Michael has toured the world with Chris Cohen, tUnE­yArDs, Sean Hayes, Miles Kurosky and Jug Free America.
