Curtis Hasselbring's New Mellow Edwards+Mike Pride's From Bacteria to Boys
Trombonist Curtis Hasselbring augments his loud and tightly linked quartet--which includes Chris Speed (saxophone, clarinet) and Trevor Dunn (bass)--with Mary Halvorson (guitar), Matt Moran (vibes), Satoshi Takeishi (percussion), and Ches Smith (subbing on drums) for the premiere of Number Stations, a work inspired by mysterious numerical shortwave transmissions. Drummer Mike Pride's group plays thick, thoughtful music that drifts in and out of harmonically familiar harbors.
