Vox Arcana, Tim Daisy's working trio with: Fred Lonberg Holm an cello and James Falzone on clarinet:

“Daisy approaches the trio’s repertoire with the discipline of a doctoral student, influenced as much by visual art as avant-garde composers. He’s demonstrated a voracious appetite, devouring the work of minimalist guru Terry Riley and AACM heavyweight Anthony Braxton but also nodding to Robert Rauschenberg, whose multimedia dissections inform Daisy’s musical mobiles.” -Areif Sless Kitain “Time Out Chicago”

“Daisy has a delightful knack for swinging and decorating at the same time, so that no matter how dense and aggressive his playing becomes, there’s a resting spot somewhere in the groove.” Bill Meyer - Signal To Noise

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
