The Joe Baer Magnant Group shifts between tradition and modernity while freely improvising over original compositions and arrangements of songs by Tom Waits, Mulatu Astatke, Erik Satie, and Gary Burton. Magnant’s genre-blurring guitar style developed while performing thousands of shows in an array of genres, studying at Berklee College of Music, and becoming one of the youngest faculty members of the Cape Cod Conservatory of Music. The quartet features Tony Capriccio on electric piano (The Hexaphonics), Chris Lujan on upright bass (The M-Tet, Terrance Brewer), and Michael Reed on drums (Planet Booty, Secret Sidewalk). Their first album Traces was released in 2014 and their second, Liminal Spaces, is planned for release in the summer of 2015 on Old Tom Foolery Records. Visit www.joebaermagnant.com for more info.
