The debut album by the ingenious composer/trombonist Curtis Hasselbring. Curtis’s composing and the New Mellow Edwards’ playing defies traditional jazz conventions and favors primal garage rock-derived grooves, textural explorations and classically-influenced structures. Curtis’s tweaked version of a modern instrumental supergroup features strong performances from three of New York’s most innovative musicians, Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Electric Masada, Melvins), John Hollenbeck (Meredith Monk, Theo Bleckmann, Claudia Quintet), and Chris Speed (Human Feel, Bloodcount, Pachora).
