After almost 20 years of sharing the bandstand together in various formats, the three of us thought that we should probably just formalize what we’ve already been doing for the last few projects … we are now a band, and that band is named Human Spirit.
The last couple of years have been incredibly productive. We recorded Thomas’ Flexicon and Human Spirit CDs together, did Matt’s Tattooed by Passion multi-media project, performed together in one form or another at almost every Ballard Jazz Festival, and shared a number of long flights and van rides.
In the near future we are writing new music, performing a few shows leading up to our live recording at the Earshot Jazz Festival on October 14-15 (where we will be joined by Orrin Evans on piano and Essiet Essiet on bass).
Please take a moment to sign our mailing list so we can keep you informed with our latest activities.
