I've been playing with this group recently. I'm not sure if I'll ever meet everyone in the band - it's always different. I think of it as islands of sound building bridges to the other islands... everyone improvises with their distinctive sound and it can sound like a random collage sometimes, but its eccentric and energetic and fun. Approach with an open mind and it will expand.
from press release for upcoming show:
Grizzler is a large improvising band organized around a diverse group fifteen of Boston's best musicians. Individually and in other groups, these musicians have developed their own strategies for music making. In Grizzler, we each try to stay true to our own individual voices while creating a collective, spontaneous composition.
