Details: Blue Cranes, Anna Webber Simple Trio, and Gavin Castleton at The Secret Society

Blue Cranes
Hailing from the fertile scene of Portland, Oregon, the Blue Cranes create music that is as invigorating as it is disarming. Consider this band a brainier kinfolk to the indie rock scene, with influences form rock and other areas, but with a solid foundation in the vocabulary of jazz. Working a thin line between improvisation and catchiness, Blue Cranes arrive at a unique place. They have found a way to make exploration seem like the most enjoyable process around.

Anna Webber's Simple Trio
Anna Webber - flute, sax; Matt Mitchell - piano; John Hollenbeck - drums

“SIMPLE” (Skirl) is her best work yet, recorded with two of the best musicians working in New York’s compositional, high-concept avant-garde — the pianist Matt Mitchell and the drummer John Hollenbeck. These pieces are bracing, argumentative and engineered to show the range of the group members: fulminous, intense collective improvisation; rapid, chromatic steeplechases; research into long tones and textures.
-Ben Ratliff, New York Times

"Castleton has a tremendous gift for fashioning grand cinematic songs that swell with ambitious prose" - Portland Mercury
