"Rocking and grooving like if Sun Ra had joined forces with Deep Purple..." - Jazz Trail
A "triple threat" ensemble comprising three world class, seasoned veterans!
Jamie Saft / Keyboards
Virtuoso pianist, keyboardist, producer, and composer, Jamie Saft's stylistic versatility, multi-instrumentalist capabilities, and production skills have been featured with Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, HR, The B-52’s, John Zorn, John Adams, Laurie Anderson, Donovan, Antony and the Johnsons, and Iggy Pop. Saft leads the New Zion Trio, The Jamie Saft Trio, and The Jamie Saft Quartet.
Saft has composed a number of original film scores including the Oscar nominated “Murderball” and Sundance winner “God Grew Tired Of Us.” Saft has also scored extensively for Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1, Vice TV, NFL Football, CBS, and A&E. Saft currently runs the independent record label Veal Records as well as Potterville International Sound, both based in Kingston, NY.
Tony Garnier / Bass
Bassist Tony Garnier was Bob Dylan's longest-running sideman, has sometimes been characterized as his "musical director" as well. In addition to his work with Dylan, Garnier has recorded with Tom Waits, Loudon Wainwright III, Paul Simon, Asleep at the Wheel, and The Lounge Lizards. He also played with Robert Gordon in the early 1980s. He was also a long-time sideman for David Johansen in his Buster Poindexter persona, and was also briefly a member of the [SNL] Saturday Night Live house band.
Mike Clark / Drums
Drum virtuoso and jazz musician Mike Clark gained worldwide recognition as one of America’s foremost jazz and funk drummers while playing with Herbie Hancock and The Headhunters in the early seventies. His incisive playing on Hancock’s “Actual Proof” garnered him an international cult following and influenced generations of drummers. His versatility led him to a two-year stint with Brand X, the British jazz/rock fusion band founded by Phil Collins. He is the co-leader of “The Wolff and Clark Expedition,” with pianist Michael Wolff. They are readying their third album while touring. He also co-leads a new incarnation of The Headhunters with original founding member Bill Summers.
