Formed in 2005, The UP is a quartet collective of New York City based artists which meshes jazz instrumentation, history and experience with an awareness in classical, contemporary forms and rough energized unpredictabilities of world music through free improvisation. It is an original musical language which has been described as having "a unique flavor, exploring a lithe playful sort of abstraction" (TimeOut New York).
The Up's members have worked separately over the years with such notable musicians as Joe and Mat Maneri, Paul Motion, Jason Moran, Butch Morris, Bill Frizzel, Lester Bowie, Craig Taborn and Miguel Zenon, to name just a few, and are part of a unique generation of musicians uplifting the improvised music scene in New York and beyond.
