New York’s Trio Caveat is an improvising ensemble whose unique approach points toward a new aesthetic wherein the entire history of Jazz group improvisation shares a brief, subtle moment of harmony. With an entirely new approach to rhythm section time keeping and melodic counterpoint, Caveat celebrates elusive grooves and evocative melody, all half-forgotten the instant a note is made. With a collective resume that includes Joe Maneri, Butch Morris, Eugene Chadbourne, Ken Vandermark, and Tim Berne, Caveat has a wealth of experience making creative improvised music. Saxophonist Jonathan Moritz brings winding, airy lines on his tenor and soprano saxophone, meeting head on the secret rhythm-tandem created by bassist James Ilgenfritz and drummer John McLellan. This is music to soothe and stir the soul.
