Earshot: Syrinx Effect + Sunchasers

Presented by Earshot Jazz Festival. Trombonist Naomi Siegel appears with two very different projects: Sunchasers – her new quartet with Geoff Harper (bass), Thione Diop (percussion), Claudio Rochat-Felix (drum set), Steven Bell (vibraphone) – employs deep grooves, folk-like melodies and collective improvisation in compositions inspired by Siegel’s influences while traveling in Senegal, Gambia and Costa Rica. Syrinx Effect is an experimental platform for Siegel and soprano saxophonist Kate Olson processing their horns with live electronics.
