Steve Marquette Quintet: A group capable of producing moments of frightening power and striking sensitivity, the Steve Marquette Quintet (formed 2012) features the talents of New Orleans musicians Jeff Albert (trombone), Brad Walker (saxophone), Jesse Morrow (bass), Steve Marquette (guitar) and Marcello Benetti (drums). Though primarily showcasing Marquette's compositions, their democratic nature provide a vehicle for all the musicians to express their unique voices and conceptions. Drawing upon the leaders eclectic spirit, the quintet brings together elements of free jazz, collective improvisation, noise/rock, and other strains of the jazz tradition. Their debut recording, 'I Knew It Then' (2013), also marks the first release of Two Cities records - Marquette's record label dedicated to documenting Chicago and New Orleans improvising musicians.
Currency imagines a trash can rattling through a chamber orchestra that is backing up a collaborative Fela Kuti/Steve Reich performance. A big band bringing together musicians from across the Atlanta scene, Currency will be performing its first show this evening.
Suffer Bomb Damage:
Pulsing acid washes over over amped distorted bubbling oozy bottom stew.
