Quiet Music @ Function Coworking Community

Derrick Michaels-tenor saxophone & Zach Swanson - bass

Since 2011, Michaels and Swanson have been conjuring and developing cohesive compositions from the ether. Defying the conventional roles relegated to the tenor saxophone and double bass, these nimble improvisers twist and turn, enmeshed like the roots of an ancient tree. This music evokes sonic textures spanning from dense & woody to spacious, fluid, & ethereal.
