Expanding the use of Jazz guitar
ABOUT NAHUM ZDYBEL
The Los Angeles-based Nahum Zdybel Trio, comprised of guitarist Nahum Zdybel, drummer Tina Raymond and bassist Emilio Terranova, explores songs with hyper-sensitive playfulness, reimagining hundred-year-old Tin Pan Alley melodies, recent indie rock songs and original compositions as baffling combustions of spontaneity and subtle cleverness. The trio entered the Los Angeles creative music scene in 2013 via the radically collaborative artistic nursery of California Institute of the Arts. Zdybel, whose “solo work and ensemble communication is…thrilling to witness” is a playful, melodic improviser who regards with equal fondness and irreverence his relationship with early jazz, hardcore punk and unstructured improvisation.
ABOUT ROSS HAMMOND
Sacramento guitarist Ross Hammond has played on large stages and in small corners throughout the United States. His sound is equal parts jazz, folk, blues, spirituals and world music. His latest release is "Humanity Suite," a live, long-form jazz suite written for sextet and recorded at the Crocker Art Museum.
"Ross Hammond-The best kept secret in Sacramento...or perhaps the entire West Coast!" -Brent Black, CriticalJazz.com
