Matt Bauder is a saxophonist who plays with a full, fluid sound that also features that breathy whisper reminiscent of Gene Ammons or Ellery Eskelin. In 2011, Downbeat stated that "he has a gift for isolating a musical language, mastering it and then introducing a personalizing twist." This is exactly what he has done with his two newest bands, Hearing Things and Day in Pictures. Also an active sideman, Matt might be the first musician to play with both Anthony Braxton and Arcade Fire.

JP Schlegelmilch plays piano, keyboards, and accordion in a number of projects that draw on jazz, rock, folk, and classical music. In a world of so-called “bands” where members are replaced for every gig, he has had a remarkable streak of playing in truly collaborative, leaderless ensembles. Old Time Musketry just released their second album, Drifter, on NCM East (You can download a track off this album on our second mixtape!) NOOK self released their second album, Recrystallize. He's also a part of a brand new band called Hearing Things that just got back from a tour opening for Will Butler (of Arcade Fire.)
Be sure to check out Old Time Musketry at their record release show Sunday, April 5th at Cornelia Street Cafe.
