With Special Guests:
The Late Regulars featuring, Tony Kiraldo, Otto Hauser and Terence Murren.
Triage is a jazz trio committed to creating deep, uncompromising, and relevant improvised music. The instrumentalists – Jarrett Gilgore on alto saxophone, Noah Jarrett on upright bass, and Kevin Ripley on drums – play mostly original music, with smatterings of free jazz greats such as Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, John Tchicai, Dewey Redman, and Anthony Braxton.
The lack of chordal instruments allows every performance to evolve organically, note by note, without confinement to chords and/or melodies and/or moods. From moment to moment, their music can alternate between meditative and cacophonous, animated and moody, chamber-like and contrapuntal, fluid and odd-metered, all the while speaking with an honest voice and keeping an open musical perspective.
The Late Regulars, featuring drummer Otto Hauser, bassist Terence Murren, and pianist Tony Kieraldo, play post-bop jazz and original compositions that fit right in with tunes by Chick Corea, Wayne Shorter, Sam Rivers and Ornette Coleman. Reviewing their recent debut at Helsinki Hudson, local music critic Seth Rogovoy wrote, “Those who were there witnessed the birth of something cool. Very cool.”
