The collective ensemble of Jeff Cosgrove/drums, Ivo Perelman/saxophone, and Matthew Shipp/piano showcase improvisation and spontaneous composition of the highest magnitude. These musicians delight in exploring the unknown and pushing the boundaries to where their music can extend. The group’s collective thought, Live In Baltimore (Leo Records), captures their spirit for creating a complete story from their unique, conversational, and personal perspective.
Tragic Assembly is a North Carolina free jazz trio consisting of veteran players Crowmeat Bob (reeds), Charles Chace (drums), and Phil Venable (upright bass). Initially meeting in Charles’ group The Paul Swest, the three musicians convened in January 2022 to record their first release, Instability. Their follow up, Blood Drains And Memories was released on August 5, 2022.
