It's been a summer on the road! We're in Seattle right now wrapping up a fantastic three-week run across the West Coast. Four states, 19 shows, 4,000 miles in the car. A huge thanks to some amazing audiences, venues and presenters! As always we're overwhelmed by the support. Can't wait to make it back next year!
We also had a great week in the Midwest in June, in Chicago, Milwaukee, Kenosha and Eau Claire. We'll see you again soon too!
Stay tuned for some exciting news this fall!
Another review! This time from Gapplegate Music!
"If you have a similar background to me, the first thing that hits you in listening to the trio Sound Underground and their album Quiet Spaces is their apparent rootedness in the classic later-'50s Jimmy Giuffre with Jim Hall and Bob Brookmeyer. There is a chamber jazz approach in common. The instrumentation of Jonah Udall on electric guitar, David Leon on alto sax, and Alec Aldred on trumpet involves a similar openness of execution, with Jonah pivoting between chordal work and a third voice. The compositions (by all three trio members) have a kind of genetic relation to the Giuffre classical-folk-jazz nexus. They are notable for their structural bent and memorability. And the improvising schemas are well thought out like the Giuffre three-some's were. But foremost in this is despite the genetic relationship the music does not really sound at all like Giuffre's did in those days. That's because it is so many years later and also because all three follow their own muses. Put all that together and you have something very nice indeed. Check this out!"
Our best wishes to all of you for 2017. We had a fantastic year, performing dozens of shows in 7 states on both coasts, meeting wonderful audiences and collaborating with great musicians - not to mention releasing our second album “Quiet Spaces” in New York in September.
Much more in store for 2017, stay tuned!
We are thrilled to announce that we'll be heading back to Bulgaria in just three weeks for the Haskovo Jazz Fest! In addition we'll be touring across the country visiting many of the beautiful places we saw last year. We hope to see some friends!
