Brooklyn’s Tenor Triage unites the saxophone camaraderie of Michael Eaton, James Brandon Lewis, and Sean Sonderegger into a freewheeling and outward bound spin on a classic matchup. The band’s chemistry melds harmolodics and hymnic free jazz to heavy hitting groove and gritty polyphony. Tenor Triage outlines their vision through original music plus a deep cut composition by Dewey Redman, joined by bassist Brad Jones and drummer G. Calvin Weston. The tenors dedicate their self titled debut album to their late bandmate, harmolodic guitar master Bern Nix.
As a saxophonist and improvising artist, Michael Eaton’s professional career to date has spanned a variety of idioms, encompassing jazz, free improvised music, soul, rock, western classical, funk, reggae, brass bands, and beyond. He embraces a progressive and holistic vision of jazz, cognizant of its rich history and development, but reaches for a personal outlook with an eye towards future possibilities.
