word/jazz lowstars
Anchored by a rhythm section of gifted improvisers—Doug Marcis on drums, Chris Vestra on guitar, Harold McMillan on bass— and gifted soloists (Cami Rocha on saxophones) who keep the exploration moving with riff-based groove-noise, Harold McMillan’s word/jazz lowstars includes local spoken word stand-outs Ivanho, Thom the World Poet, Ricardo Acevedo, and others. Past featured performers include Valerie Bridgeman Davis, raulsalinas, Zell Miller, Daniel Davis Clayton, Poet on Watch, Sharon Bridgeforth, Chandra Washington and numerous other world-class Austin-based poets, writers, and players.

WD-41
Willie Oteri and Dave Laczko are at the forefront of the local Beyond Jazz scene and have toured Italy and Germany since their first release WD-41 in 2009. A treack from their second release Temi Per Cinema is currently in the Top 25 downloads of the last 30 days at All About Jazz. They are presently working on a new release. "The artists transmit a dark and ethereal set of circumstances, while having some notable fun during the process. It's a synthetic soundscape of aural colors that prods the mind's eye—stranger than fiction, some might say." -Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz.
