Recent ecording of Never

Jack Wright responds to the word "musician" and "saxophonist" (among others) and is mild-mannered in most social situations, doesn't kill most animals, and obeys most road signs. He improvises, sometimes astutely, sometimes foolishly, but never with the intent to make something called "music." Whatever it is, more sounds come out of his horn than you are likely to have heard.

Ben Bennett doesn’t talk much, thinks hard and often about how to do good in the world, and ends up playing the drums when he decides he has nothing better to do. Apparently that's the case fo rthe past 23 years. Apparently his solution is to sound like the whole world coming out of a drum set.

Zach Darrup is an improvising guitarist currently living in Philadelphia. During his early teenage years in the rural coal region of Pennsylvania a strange boy appeared like an angel, carrying a large cd booklet of wild musics of all sorts. This chance meeting at a pizza shop, plus tumultuous relationships with his home turf, school teachers, and other agents of law and rule enforcement led Zach to drop out and skip town, devoting himself to following music wherever it would take him--somewhere else. His techniques are informed by the musical possibilities of film language, jovial mockery and mimicry of plants, animals, and audience members, thoughtful room listening, word play, colors, and culinary experiments.

Never will be on tour Sept. 23 to Oct. 3, messing with the musical consciousness of Ithaca NY, Olean NY, Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit, Muskegon MI, Chicago, Indianapolis, Dayton, and Pittsburgh. For info go to the Schedule.
