- Brian Groder Trio featuring Michael Bisio and Jay Rosen
- Tani Tabbal Trio featuring Adam Siegel and Michael Bisio
Brian Groder draws on the entire jazz tradition, as well as world music influences, to create compositions critics have called “Music not only for today, but also for tomorrow,” and AllAboutJazz hailed as “Music of ceaselessly fascinating possibilities.”
A New York native, Groder comes by his musical abilities honestly. Both his parents were working musicians during the Swing Era. His parents were musicians and from a young age Groder played trumpet and flügelhorn. Early in his professional career he played in hotel and casino bands in Atlantic City backing visiting pop stars. For about a decade he taught in Philadelphia before moving back to New York City in the early 90s. Groder established a reputation among avant garde jazz and improvised music players, including Abstract Truth recording Curiosity on Acoustical Concepts in 1991.
Tani Tabbal began playing drums professionally as a teen, performing with Oscar Brown Jr., Phil Cohran, and Sun Ra and his Arkestra.
Tabbal has recorded, performed and toured with a wide range of musicians, including Roscoe Mitchell, David Murray, Geri Allen, Cassandra Wilson, James Carter, Karl Berger, Dewey Redman, David ‘Fathead’ Newman, Evan Parker, Anthony Braxton, Douglas Ewart, Oliver Lake, Muhal Richard Abrams, Henry Threadgill, Richard Davis, Leroy Jenkins, Milt Jackson, and Jackie McLean.
