They are not a political party, but given all the different musical points of view brought to bear by these three veteran improvisers, a delicious Big Tent in sound is created when drummer/percussionist Harvey Sorgen, bassist Steve Rust and pianist/vocalist Jerome Kitzke come together. The resulting music is possessed of raw energy or delicate filigree and everything in between, all delivered with a passionate verve rooted in broad deep emotions that are served beautifully by the prodigious technique each player possesses. The use of poetry brings a tight formal cohesion to some this work and you know you are not hearing your average improv band. When they are ferocious, the roar is also quirky and when they are tender, the tear that forms will most likely come with a smile. Big Tent: endorsing bipartisan listening since 2003.
BIG TENT will be supporting their soon to be released record “I AM WAITING” featuring the poems of Lawrence Ferlinghetti
