    Evan Stone & The Translucent Ham Sandwich Band

    Imagine getting up in front of a live crowd with your favorite musical kindred spirits and winging it musically for an hour and a half? A funky sonic tsunami born out of creative adventurous, Evan Stone and the Translucent Ham Sandwich Band have done just that for several years on the southern California club circuit, wowing audiences with their Psychedelic/Funk/Rock/Prog/Avant Garde/Jazz musical musings and Andy Warhol's Exploding Plastic Inevitable visuals.  It's a genre meshing extravaganza of experimental shenanigans that has no immediate comparison.

     

    Now Stone is poised to unleash their squawky perambulations and angst filled ruminations to the world. Their debut album, Music From The Future, features 21 fully realized tracks sure to raise eyebrows and have jaws hitting the floor. Expansive and discursive, the listener is quite likely to wonder what is going on here musically in the world of The Translucent Ham Sandwich Band, but that's Stone's ultimate goal. Equal parts jam and improv, (think Ornette Coleman playing with Captain Beefhart's Magic Band), the record opens by establishing a palpable sense of uneasiness (flies buzzing, dogs barking, phones ringing, radio static) that permeates this sometimes abrasively bizarre, decidedly discordant and challenging musical schematic. Stone's timely social commentary and razor sharp observations, sometimes resembling psychotic rants, weave in and out of the entire presentation, with enough guffaws and slam style poetry along the way to be worth the price of admission. 

     

     

     

  • Trio Eclectic

    Trio Eclectic

    This Trio Eclectic project has been a long time coming. For the last 15 years, saxophonist Dave Goldberg and guitarist Duane Allen, have been doing 100% improvised performances. Each "tune" representing different styles or moods to contrast the one before. Loops and effects have always been a part of this concept to add to the overall texture as needed. While enjoying playing as a duo, Dave and Duane have found it fun to add different drummers over the years to round out the group. For this performance they are happy to have extremely talented drummer and friend Chris Wabich. His use of space and the choices he makes, pairs perfectly with their concept.

     

    As for the music, Trio Eclectic will be using brief sketches, rather than compositions, as vehicles to explore. Rather than 100% improvised music, it’s now closer to 98%, but that 2% of structure (if you can call it that) gives a foundation for the listener. The spontaneity is still present, as these tunes aren’t talked about or rehearsed prior to performing them. What you have here are 3 musicians negotiating each situation as it occurs.  The result is a fresh and new performance every time you hear Trio Eclectic.  As renowned jazz critic Scott Yanow recently commented…. “Trio Eclectic provides a consistently intriguing, diverse and colorful yet surprisingly accessible set of inventive jazz.”  Artistically Trio Eclectic pushes the envelope to create beauty.  To do so, however you must risk chaos.  But out of this "chaos" comes order, where if you observe their final canvas, you have an aural representation of a Jackson Pollock like concept.  It’s clear that it’s a lot of fun for them to perform like this, and definitely an interesting and engaging journey for the listener.

     

  • AeB

    AeB

    Reverberating from jazz festivals to gritty pubs, yoga retreats to all-night fire parties on downtown rooftops, Adrienne "Aeb" Byrne is a force of nature on her latest self-titledrelease.

    The City Of Angels resident musical mad scientist, Aeb effortlessly blends classic piano songwriting with saucy pop and ethereal flute work to craft songs that are equal parts Fiona Apple and Beck, with all the swagger of Amy Winehouse with the esoteric experimentation of Radiohead.

    On this outing, Aeb, (herself a classically trained jazz musician who cut her teeth with alongside contemporary jazz greats Duane Eubanks, Ronnie Burrage and the late Sid Simmons), flirts between sexy, solo piano bar songstress and balls to the wall funky rock with her backing band of classic rock royalty.

    A gorgeous mess of sonic pop mayhem, Aeb is equally at home when it's just Byrne ripping up solo sets, or with her band - Eric Ward (Marvin Gaye) and Evan Stone (The Translucent Ham Sandwich Band), who back Aeb in crafting those fat, soul-rock grooves that complement her smart songwriting.

    Though you may find Aeb on any given night knocking down musical walls at some of L.A.'s hottest clubs - Byrne has also backed and shared the stage with many a musical icon, including Robby Krieger (The Doors), Alex Lifeson (Rush), Tommy Thayer (Kiss), Alice Cooper, Danny Seraphine (Chicago), Sebastian Bach (Skid Row) and Phil Chen (Rod Stewart, Jeff Beck).

    This Summer, Aeb will be touring in support of her upcoming EP
