Night Tree: These six conservatory-trained musicians have absorbed genres from across the globe. Night Tree is unique, not only for its abnormal instrumentation of two fiddles, cello, accordion, saxophone, percussion, and the occasional viola and mandolin, but for their collective representation and incorporation of traditions from Irish, Classical, Swedish, Jazz, Klezmer, and Afro-Cuban music. Each artist’s personality is given a spot to emerge with fiery improvisation, individual compositions, and a pristine ear. The band thrives on playing in darkness as to allow themselves the opportunity to solely listen with the absence of any possible visual distractions. They react to each other at any given time, in a matter of seconds. They have learned to get inside each other’s musical minds, creating one blossoming and unpredictable wave of sound that is Night Tree. https://www.facebook.com/nighttreemusicboston/
“I’m thrilled to have been part of this brilliant young band’s debut album. They play with such spark and musicality. Thoughtful compositions, precise, inventive arrangements. An absolute joy. Go hear them!” -Séamus Egan, founding member of SOLAS and Night Tree producer
Petite 3 is the collective name of three friends and New England Conservatory alums: pianist Shane Simpson, saxophonist Travis Bliss, and drummer Jonathan Starks. As a band, they are dedicated to performing their arrangements of the Ragtime music of Scott Joplin as well as early jazz reminiscent of the roaring 20s and 30s, drawing inspiration from player pianos, minimalism, social gatherings, dance, glitch art, and comedy duo Tim and Eric. Every Petite 3 performance is a step into the past as well as the future, bound to offer a unique and memorable evening.
