Add to Calendar 2017-08-14 8:00 pm 2017-08-14 Sound Etiquette (orenda Records) At The Bancroft at The Bancroft Sound Etiquette (Oakland, CA) makes a rare trip down south to The Bancroft Bar to celebrate the release of their debut album on Orenda Records!

Sound Etiquette melds avant-garde & free-jazz aesthetics with more contemporary styles to create music that pays tribute to the creative improv traditions of the past while reinvigorating them with a distinctly modern character. Their self-titled debut on Orenda Records imagines a universe where the small-minded distinctions of musical genre become obsolete, giving way to a space where new unions of sound are possible.

"Sound Etiquette revisits an old, forgotten virtue from the earliest days of electric jazz, when an amplified keyboard alongside acoustic instruments played with pure instinct was synonymous with timbre-rich fuzziness and freedom."
-Something Else!

"This trio’s most obvious influence seems to be early 70’s Miles Davis. With a signature electronic sound that harkens back to the analog nature of that era."
-Avant Music News

"The trio has an intuitive sense for group dynamics in musical space. Each knows when to step forward into the mix with a soloistic gesture, and when to offer sounds in support. The sense of listening is present throughout, as is the feeling of collective exploration."
-Jazz Scene Magazine

"There are enough traces of melody in each of their compositions to suggest that it may have started life as tuneful as any song from the Ray Charles songbook. Then, the trio annihilated it."
- Best New Jazz on Bandcamp

"Sound Etiquette is a fine recording from this West Coast trio, with roots firmly planted in the soil of early jazz/rock, and growing into something else entirely."
