Equal Time

Equal Time makes creative improvised music. Sometimes we call it “free jazz” or “avant garde jazz”, but it doesn’t always come out sounding like jazz, since we bring our other influences to the table too (classic rock, electronic music, death metal, blues, prog rock, modern classical, etc.). But we all have deep roots in jazz and improvised music.

Most times when we perform we do it without too much of a plan. Sometimes we’ll bring a composition, or cover a tune, but often we’ll go up on stage with no idea what’s going to happen from one moment to the next, until we get there. We like it that way, and it’s pretty fun for the audience too.

“Equal Time specializes in creating music of the moment…incisive and exploratory improvisations.” -Alan Chase, The Wire
