    This Thursday at Portal The Miniwatt String Trio will have Tarik Ragab on bass subbing for New Orleans-bound Myles Boisen.
    Tarik is a regular in the JE Group so we'll likely be adding a few of those tunes into the Miniwatt book. Myles is back next week.
    We play 7-10. Check it out!

  • Really thrilled to be playing in John Schott's Thinking Person's String Ensemble this Friday. 
    This is a premiere of new compositions by guitarist/composer John Schott for 14 strings and rhythm section. John's recordings have appeared on Tzadic, Songline, Knitting Factory, and w/TJ Kirk on Warner Bros and Ropeadope. 

    Check it out! 

    Schott's description:

    "Premiere of my new music for large string ensemble. In my short lifetime as a working musician, I have witnessed the emergence of an ever-growing group of happening, classically-trained string players who also are kick-ass improvisers, who are used to playing with drums, who are aware of popular music, and take all this diversity for granted. This is music that draws on these great player’s versatility and resourcefulness. It drifts from exactingly notated composition to free improvisation and all points in between. Well, actually not all points. Three points in between, more like."

    Lots of great string players and wonderful rhythm section too:
    Featuring Rachel Durling, Tara Flandreau, Jessie Ivry, Dan Seamans, Myra Chachkin, Brandon Essex, Sarah Willner, Hilary Overberg, Craig Fry, John Ettinger, Jasper Hussong, Kim Cass, and Jordan Glenn and more.

  • Joining forces in a brand new jazz project called The Miniwatt String Quartet are violinist John Ettinger, guitarists Myles Boisen and Jon Preuss, and bassist Todd Sickafoose.

    Between them they’ve played or recorded with musicians such as Tom Waits, John Zorn, Fred Frith, Eugene Chadbourne, Nels Cline, Ani DiFranco, Vernon Reid, Trey Gunn, Honeycut, Yoko Ono, Trey Anastasio, Beth Custer, Scott Amendola, and lots more.
