Sex Mob - featuring Steven Bernstein on slide trumpet, Briggan Krauss on alto sax, Tony Scherr on bass and Kenny Wollesen on drums - is a rare band that has created its own sound, a completely unique language combined with the telepathy that musicians cultivate over years of playing together. This special 92YTribeca performance will be the US premiere of the "Axis of Melody Suite", an ever evolving suite based on melodies from Duke Ellington, Nino Rota and John Barry. Equally at home at a jazz festival, rock club, or concert hall, Sex Mob’s music is a combination of the grace of Ellington, the power of punk rock, and New Orleans groove, all filtered through a "Downtown" sensibility. Also on the bill for the evening is Honey Ear Trio, the new incarnation of long-time musical cohorts Erik Lawrence, Rene Hart and Allison Miller. Honey Ear Trio creatively fuses the acoustic sound of a traditional saxophone trio with modern electronics derived from Hart's manipulation of his bass sound. They also explore mixing multiple genres (jazz, rock, soul, folk) while bending, stretching, and decompressing the rhythmic and harmonic characteristics of the music....
