THE SCENE: EPISODE 1

Chord Four

The music of Chord Four is explored through the words of Brandon Sherman (trumpet) and Hardbop’s Alexander Ariff.  The group, hailing from LA, takes free improvisation and inserts traditional european/american folk idioms with jazz sensibility. All 8 of the acute ears of Chord Four are in touch with their place in the unpredictable world  of free improvisation.

THE SCENE: EPISODE 2

Mike DiRubbo

 

I spoke with Mike DiRubbo about his time at Hart studying under Jackie McLean and also about his latest record “Chronos” now out on Positone Records. He’s a humble guy who views jazz music as  fraction of the picture. He feels that when you start to separate music from your life, thats when things become sterile and academic. I couldn’t agree more.  Check out his album online and please visit  http://www.mikedirubbo.com
