Earshot presents Jazz: The 2nd Century

Guitarist Dennis Rea heads a thrilling electric string quartet + drums featuring Ruth Davidson (cello), Alicia Allen (violin), Domenico Chiaverini (bass), and Jay Jaskot (drums). The new trio Snapbite, with saxophonist Eric Barber, bassist PK, and drummer Matt Crane, is a powerhouse of improvisation underpinned by swing, extended techniques, and a ferocious rhythmic attack steeped not only in jazz but also in world music, funk, and contemporary chamber music.
