EASTEND MILE IS AN ALTERNATIVE JAZZ GROUP DEDICATED TO BRINGING A UNIQUE SONIC EXPERIENCE MELDING INNOVATION AND SELF-EXPRESSION TO AUDIENCES.
Eastend Mile was formed in 2013 after Pittsburgh saxophonist Roger Romero and pianist Caleb Lombardi realized they shared a musical vision of creating a contemporary jazz sound for a new generation.
Equally influenced by artists like Robert Glasper and Brian Blade, the band recorded their first album, City Limits. After a short hiatus, musicians Dhruva Krishna and Chris “Tiggy” Thygesen joined the lineup adding a new, harder dimension to the band’s expanding sound.
No one else sounds like these guys, yet they’re not so far off the map as to be
alienating. They have a unique vision and they know how to get there—and how to
bring you along for the ride. - Sound Scene Express
