Four of the citys most engaging ensembles get their extrapolation on in an urban meadow that provides sea breezes from Buttermilk Channel. Bassist Chris Lightcaps Bigmouth has lots of swoop on their new *Deluxe.* At their recent release party the bassist had his twin tenors spelling "anything goes" in skywriting as the rhythm section percolated underneath. Pianist James Carneys foursome is adept at fracturing melodies while sustaining the musics thematic coherence. Bassist Todd Sickafoose's Tiny Resisters is a super tight outfit that makes prog intricacies swing. Drummer Harris Eisenstadt's Canada Day uses a vibraphone to add eeriness to a book of quick-pulsed freebop. Want to get caught up with whats what on the scene? Heres an easy way.
