STEUART LIEBIG

A major concern of Steuart Liebig’s is space; acknowledging it, defining it, dividing it
up. If anyone can be funky without necessarily grooving, it’s bassist Liebig, a master of
the unexpected cosmic event.

DWIGHT TRIBLE

Many jazz musicians will tell you that they prefer not to work with singers, because most jazz singers lack the ability to improvise, have no understanding of musicianship, nor any of the other traits associated with making jazz music – one of the most interesting and exciting musical genres today.
Dwight Trible is a singer who combines the best of vocal virtuosity with musicianship and improvisational skills to the delight of audiences and musicians alike. In addition to performing with his own group, the Dwight Trible Ensemble, Dwight is the vocalist with the Pharaoh Sanders Quartet and is also the vocal director for the Horace Tapscott Pan Afrikan Peoples’ Arkestra.

Like his mentors, Dwight is not content to use his music just to entertain people, although he is quite a dynamic performer. He uses his music to bring people together, to bridge the gap between the races, and to heal the human heart. He has received numerous awards for his humanitarian efforts.

ROSS HAMMOND

…Free-jazz improvisation with something that’s thematic, a larger thematic idea that’s the undercurrent of the piece. If I’m improvising, I try to play melodies against what’s happening.”

Hammond’s own listening tastes suggest the eclecticism of his compositions. On any given day his house will be filled with the sounds of Joni Mitchell or Iron & Wine or Tarbaby or Iron Maiden. He also stays current with the jazz scene. “I’m constantly hearing music that’s flooring me and I’m trying to stay up on it. I feel like if you don’t stay up on the new music you’re living in a bubble and I don’t want to do that. ”

Hammond’s next project is a suite for sextet called The Humanity Suite, based on silhouettes by artist Karen Walker.
“She’s giving an exhibition in Sacramento and I got a commission to compose music based on her work. It’s a suite of different compositions that are linked together with improv sections and solos and duos. That’ll be at the Crocker Museum in Sacramento in October. I’m going to try to record it, too. So we’re going to perform it in October and hopefully release it next year. ”

For Ross Hammond, it’s the variety of experience that he finds most attractive about being a musician, and an improvising musician in particular.
