TIN/BAG, the bi-coastal duo of California trumpeter Kris Tiner and New York guitarist Mike Baggetta, deals with a music that is spare and ethereal, exploring the spaces between jazz, traditional musics, and contemporary composition. Since 2004 Tiner and Baggetta have toured extensively, presenting their original music along with inventive renderings of works by Bob Dylan, Kitty Wells, Thelonious Monk, Carla Bley, Hank Williams, Willie Nelson and others. Their 2005 debut CD There, Just As You Look For It on pfMENTUM Records was met with enthusiastic reviews and continues to receive international airplay. Tin/Bag's second CD And Begin Again, released in 2007 on Evander Music, featured two extended works for quartet with virtuoso L.A. clarinetist Brian Walsh and acclaimed NYC jazz percussionist Harris Eisenstadt. Their 2011 album Bridges, recorded with the support of a Subito grant from the American Composers Forum, was named as one of the ten best jazz recordings of the year by critic Hank Shteamer of Time Out New York. Their current release is The Stars Would Be Different, a collection of new compositions and country standards recorded live in the extraordinary acoustics of an old church in Bakersfield, CA. The digital album is available now on Epigraph Records.
