Experimental clarinetist and sonic manipulator Jeremiah Cymerman plays in Bloodmist and Pale Horse and has worked with Evan Parker, Nate Wooley, Peter Evans & many more. Mr. Novik and AVA MENDOZA are from the Bay area and both played together in Fred Frith's Gravity project. Ms. Mendoza\s amazing power trio Unnatural Ways have a smokin' disc out on Tzadik from last year that you need! The ever in-demand BRANDON SEABROOK plays both electric guitar and banjo and has been blowing minds on both instruments. Brandon has an astounding trio called Seabrook Power Plant that must be seen & heard to be believed!?! Plus he works with: Gerald Cleaver's Black Host, Andrew Drury's Content Provider and Peter Evans Quartet.
