the cellar and point

THE CELLAR AND POINT is an adventurous, NYC­based “garage-chamber” septet whose musical universe comprises the detail of modern concert music, the improvisational sensibilities of downtown jazz, and the emotional directness of alt-rock. Formed in 2010 by drummer/composer Joseph Branciforte and guitarist/composer Christopher Botta, the ensemble features an impressive cross-section of young talent from NYC's classical, jazz, and new music scenes ­ including members of JACK Quartet, Mivos Quartet, Ensemble Signal, and TRANSIT.

“Post-everything... chamber music, rock, jazz, post-rock and electronic all rub elbows, and the sparks fly... The Cellar and Point have moved into a territory all their own.” Wondering Sound

“One of the most interesting bands of the moment, perhaps able to answer the question ‘where is music going?’” All About Jazz
