“The combination of jazz and electronic (funk/jazztronica) is improvisational by nature and creates a precarious blend of simplicity and complexity that is mind-blowing. Watching the two work off of each other, improving and building off of each other's energy and sound was quite a pleasure.” - KC Orcutt
