Event Archive - JEFF YOUNGER PRESENTS, vol 32:: The Unsupervised, LONGHAND TRIO, Carsick

Tue. January 19th 2010 Railway Club (No Minors)
8:30 PM
$8/$6 at the door only.
Formed in 2005 and led by guitarist/composer Jeff Younger, The Unsupervised has built a reputation as one of Canada's most voracious and adventuresome modern jazz predators. The band slams, screams and swings, and feasts in the depths of unpredictable sonic fronteirs.
The Band’s eclectic repertoire ranges from Skye Brooks’ singer-songwriter originals, instrumentals covers by Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye, John Coltrane and Keith Jarrett and originals that range from roots-influenced compositions to more experimental excursions.
The music of Carsick (JP Carter, trumpet; Dave Sikula, guitar) makes use of subtle melodic material, free improvisation and noise to create soundscapes both epic and minimal, dark and beautiful. The duo reaches some truly amazing sonic peaks with just two instruments at their disposal.
"...a series of evocative soundscapes that are ripe with tiny, haunting melodies" - Victoria Times-Colonist
“There is a root of jazz in their pieces, as if Miles Davis played with Sonic Youth...” - Tandem
