Long time collaborators Erika Oba (piano) and Chris Bastian (bass) are joined by Jeremy Steinkoler (drums), performing original compositions and arranged works that cover a dynamic range of emotions and styles. Drawing on influences ranging from Thelonious Monk to Okinawan folk music, the band deftly navigates from be-bop to classically influenced, through-composed pieces, captivating audiences with music coming from deep listening and a remarkably intuitive sense of comping and phrasing to support one another.

The group’s last performance moved Back Room owner Sam Rudin to describe it as “One of the finest afternoons of music we’ve EVER had here." Listen here.
