Bicoastal Collective: Chapter 6 will be recorded in NYC this summer. As with all the BC projects this one will feature a new ensemble. Aaron and Paul will be throwing the classic Gerry Mulligan 1950s quartet in a blender with Miles Davis’ late 60s early 70s funk/fusion. Joining the BC family will be Joe Abba on drums and Trifon Dimitrov on bass. Look for a release with Origin Arts in the near future! After the past few crazy years the collective is excited to blast off! We’ll be playing live in NYC in preparation for the recording too. We’ll post the dates soon!
