Tiptons Sax Quartet & Drums With Mike Gamble's Second Wind At The Analog says
The Tiptons Sax Quartet and Drums -- the dynamic collaboration of Amy Denio, Jessica Lurie, Sue Orfield, Tina Richerson & Tarik Abouzied -- bring their micro-big band to Balkan folk, classic jazz to nocturnal funk, back to Portland for a sonic adventure!

"The Tiptons blow up a mess of Balkan, Second Line, and carnival-esque lines, joyful, wry, and well traveled … a hard blowing, rhythm-driven bunch of reeds." - The Stranger

“The mighty, groovy spectacle is of the Tiptons rousing fun with music. The beaming faces and the unrestrained gaiety of power women and their drummer make the evening not only musically, but also mentally into an unforgettable experience.” – Kunstbox, Seekirchen, A

THE TIPTONS are an internationally renowned saxophone quartet with drums based in Brooklyn, NY and Seattle, WA and Eau Claire, WI. Their ‘world soul’ genre-busting sound ranges from micro-Big Band to Gospel, Bluegrass to Balkan, whimsical Jazz to Nocturnal Funk to Free. The Tiptons’ solid instrumental and vocal talent is forged from 20 years of collaboration, creating some of the freshest sounds on the jazz/world/pop music scene today. Their dynamic, playful performances feature high-energy interaction between members and with the public

Mike Gamble is an adventurous guitarist and multi-instrumentalist whose work with electronic modes of composition are integrated endlessly into his setup. Gamble has spent the last 15 years immersed in the creative jazz, experimental rock and improvised music scene primarily in NYC, with close ties to New Orleans, Burlington, Boston, San Francisco and the Pacific Northwest. He has had the pleasure of recording over 20 albums and touring the states, Canada, and Europe with his critically-acclaimed guitar trio The Inbetweens, Counter Record’s Cougar, and alongside doom-metal originators Earth. His more recent collaborators have been prestigious drummer Bobby Previte, bassist Todd Sickafoose, guitar virtuoso Nels Cline, and PNW cellist Lori Goldston. Since relocating to Portland Mike has been running a monthly Audio/Visual series featuring local and touring artists, encouraging them to play rare solo, duo, and trio sets with his own audio-reactive projection setup. Among working on soundtracks, web-series, and branded content for small businesses, Gamble currently holds a position as an Audio Production instructor at Oregon State University. His new trio features bassist Andrew Jones and drummer Chris Johnedis.

“He has a brain that seems to work faster than other human brains - maybe more like a hummingbird or a spider. Music comes flying out. You just sit and listen to what he thinks of next” - Todd Sickafoose

“Mike Gamble is dangerous in the best way” - Nels Cline

“Mr. Gamble knows his way around a drone, but he also puts a lot of shifting harmony and texture in his one-man sketches come across as thoughtfully developed compositions” Nate Chinen NY TIMES
