Gordon Grdina, Jim Black, Oscar Noriega, Mat Maneri
This new quartet brings heavy-hitters from New York-based groups like Endangered Blood, AlasNoAxis, and Square Peg together with JUNO Award-winning Vancouverite Gordon Grdina guitar/oud (Haram, Peregrine Falls) to channel intense, virtuosic power, and contemplative melodic excursions. Based in jazz traditions, but with equal parts rock, punk, and exploratory atonality, this group of next-level innovators take unexpected turns at every corner. With Mat Maneri (Ches Smith, Craig Taborn) viola, Oscar Noriega (Banda De Los Muertos) alto sax/clarinets, and drummer Jim Black (Nels Cline, Tim Berne).
