Timothy Orr was born in Hartford, Connecticut on June 22, 1967 and began playing the drums in 1976. After playing in several rock bands in the early 80’s, he studied with Edward Blackwell from 1985-89 at Wesleyan University where he earned a BA in English, with a concentration in Medieval and Renaissance literature. In retrospect, he should have studied Ethnomusicology.
Very edgy Bay Area trio with a wide-ranging but unified sound. Not all about noise, though they certainly have that in spades. They have a strong group personality, brash and full of spirit, diving in and going for it without taking themselves too seriously. And they get fine results. -- kzsu, Palo Alto, CA
The members of this free-jazz trio advertise themselves as a form of aural assault, but their new album is surprisingly enjoyable. Broken begins with a long, bracing saxophone solo that might befit a blues tune. Even the swooshy chromatics have a sense of emotional purpose
