Al Biles and GenJam

December 31st at 7:00pm

Al Biles & GenJam play jazz, which doesn’t sound fringy. Well, the music may be straight-ahead, but the band is far-out. Al (a human trumpet player) and GenJam (the Genetic Jammer) improvise on tunes ranging from swing and bop to Latin and pop. Al and GenJam listen and reply to each other, but since GenJam is computer software that evolves its musical ideas in real time, it’s spontaneous, responsive, and definitely on the fringe.
