For Trees & Birds
For Trees & Birds

For Trees & Birds is a NYC-based band made up of Jasper Dutz (alto sax, bass clarinet), Lee Meadvin (guitar), Chris Gaskell (upright bass), and Connor Parks (drums). They play original improvisational music rooted in the jazz idiom and influenced by alternative rock and the avant-garde. Think Dolphy meets Bjork in a “choir over groove” setting and you’re almost there.

Michael LeMorin Quartet at PLG Arts Jazz @the Inkwell Friday, Jan 8, 7:30

Photo_Flier (2) Michael LeMorin’s music blends the tropical grooves of Brazil and the Caribbean—reggae, konpa, samba, bossa nova—with jazz. Evocative lyrics in French, English, and Haitian Creole speak to both mind and heart. His latest album, Pawòl (Word), is representative of this sonic cocktail.

Michael LeMorin Quartet will be playing on January 8 from 7:30-9:30 pm: Michael LeMorin, guitar and vocals; Russel-Madden, tenor sax; Stuart Grant, bass; and Andreas Brade, drums. Join us at the Inkwell Cafe, 408 Rogers Ave between Sterling St and Lefferts Ave. $5 donation supports the musicians and PLG Arts.
