We are back at the Camellia Lounge this Friday, March 2, 2012, 9pm (details). This show was originally supposed to be our Kickstarter campaign kickoff party, but the campaign announcement has been postponed as we work out the logistics for our upcoming record. Instead, we are excited to debut our 3-part rock suite for soprano electric guitar! This piece has been really fun to put together and record. We will be releasing “Witar Suite” (as we call it) as a digital download on Bandcamp.com. Right now we are in the mixing phase so it should be available in April 2012.
Also, on Friday we will be joined by Marc Hutchinson on tenor sax. Marc is an awesome talent and he really brings energy and exceptional musicianship to the bandstand. It’s going to be a great show and we can’t wait!
Again, here are the vitals on this Friday’s show (details).
We’ve got many plates spinning, pots cooking, choose your metaphor…Trio Flux is working hard this fall on a number of exciting projects! Last week we were in the studio recording our latest work, a 3-part rock suite composed by Neil. It’s nearly 25 minutes of musical flux-uations, a sort of homage to our favorite rock bands of our youth with a healthy dose of formal and harmonic complexities. We plan on
releasing unleashing the currently untitled piece via bandcamp.com as soon as it’s mixed and mastered. This will be a download-only digital offering to keep our fans satisfied while we work on our next full length record.
Speaking of the next record! We’ve got nearly enough new material to fill out an album. Many of these tunes we’ve been playing at our shows over the past few months. Our plan is to begin recording this winter with a release goal for the end of summer 2012.
As far as shows goes, we have 3 big ones coming up…
All acoustic, all night! Neil on flat-top acoustic guitar, Julio upright bass, and Adam on brushes. The toned-down texture offers us the opportunity to re-interpret Trio Flux classics! Throw in some Bill Frisell (and maybe some Lefty too!!) this will be a memorable night of music!
Back to our old tricks again, full blown Trio Flux in all its glory. Don’t miss this show – and perhaps a chance to hear the aforementioned and currently untitled Rock Suite!
This is the big one we’ve all been waiting for. Trio Flux with special guests Andrew Oliver (keys), James M. Gregg (trumpet), and Marc Hutchinson (tenor sax). New arrangements for the expanded instrumentation, Herbie, Miles, and more. Don’t miss this one!!
