Jaimie Branch's Fly or Die

A mainstay of the Chicago jazz scene and an active recent addition to the New York scene, Jaimie Branch is an avant-garde trumpeter known for her “ghostly sounds," says The New York Times, and for "sucker punching" crowds straight from the jump off, says Time Out. Her classical training and “unique voice capable of transforming every ensemble of which she is a part” (Jazz Right Now) has contributed to a wide range of projects not only in jazz but also punk, noise, indie rock, electronic and hip-hop. Branch’s work as a composer and a producer, as well as a sideman for the likes of William Parker, Matana Roberts, TV on the Radio and Spoon, is all on display in her debut record Fly or Die – a dynamic 35-minute ride that dares listeners to open their minds to music that knows no genre, no gender, no limits.

Craig Pedersen Quartet

Formed in 2011, the Craig Pedersen Quartet came together to perform the compositions of Montréal- based trumpeter Craig Pedersen. The current band features Linsey Wellman (FET.NAT / Kobo Town) on alto saxophone, Thierry Amar (GY!BE / A Silver Mt. Zion) on bass and Bennett Bedoukian (Cold Eye / Horseman, Pass By) on drums. Ranging from full-out intensity to the near-pastoral, the rapid fire trumpet lines, wailing woodwind squeals, punching bass articulation, and pummelling drums serve to push and pull against Pedersen’s compositions. It is music that often sounds like it’s falling apart and being put back together, only to fall apart again. www.craigpedersen.com/
