Endangered Blood + Amendola / Hoopes / Evangelista

  • Ivy Room 860 San Pablo Ave Albany, CA 94706 USA (map)

The four members of Endangered Blood are some of the most influential jazz musicians of their generation. Jim Black should need no introduction to listeners of creative music, having established himself as one of the most inventive drummers of his generation, and is currently leading his own trio as well as post-rock/jazz group Alas No Axis. Bassist Trevor Dunn has been touring the world with MR. BUNGLE and FANTOMAS as well as entering the Guinness Book of World Records by playing fifty gigs in fifty states in fifty days as a member of the MELVINS LITE. Oscar Noriega is fast becoming one of the rising stars of creative music as a member of Tim Berne’s acclaimed Snakeoil quartet. Chris Speed continues to be one of the most highly respected jazz saxophonists and clarinetists working today, currently playing with Craig Taborn, Dave King, Uri Caine and John Hollenbeck’s long running Claudia Quintet.

Scott Amendola Trio

Drummer Scott Amendola, guitarist Karl Evangelista, and bassist Jason Hoopes bring their own distinctive compositional and improvisational voices to the table in this newly-formed high energy trio.
