performances are live, in the moment.  no recorded tracks.  no two gigs are the same. 

what you get is what you see and hear from us only as we offer not-so-straight-ahead ensemble music, jazz and otherwise

we are nothing if not flexible in assembling folks to create together, often as mahaloJazz
