Saturday, Dec 16, 2017, 8 PM

Includes $1.00 Preservation Fee

Sound of Mind is raw audio bliss and contrast in motion, by turns a lush instrumental tapestry of lyrical melody and intense interlocking parts and improvisation. A collective of some of the Northeast’s finest players from groups as far ranging as Vorcza Trio, the Barr Brothers, the Dave Holland big band and Anais Mitchell's Hadestown Orchestra, S.O.M. features the writing of bassist Robinson Morse and the playing of Taylor Haskins (trumpet, e.v.i., and effects), Jake Whitesell (baritone sax), Bryan McNamara (alto and tenor sax), James Harvey (trombone), Zach Tonnissen (tenor sax), Parker Shper (piano, keys, and synth), Dan Davine (guitar), PJ Davidian (percussion) and Dan Ryan (drums). This performance also features special guest multi-instrumentalist Peter Apfelbaum who graced the band's recent first release Enough is Plenty on tenor saxophone and Hammond organ.

News & Updates





It all started when...

A native of Vermont, Morse spent some years in New York studying bass with John Patitucci and honing his composition chops at City College.  Since then he's been performing and recording with a ton of innovative folks and genre benders like Taylor Haskins, Michael Chorney, the Dupont Brothers and many more.  After establishing himself as a flexible and supportive sideman with artists from Anais Mitchell of Hadestown fame and Ray Vega to Arturo, Adam and Zack O'Farrill, Morse recently released his first recording as a leader with the Sound of Mind Medium Big Band.  When not traveling or performing Rob works as a luthier in a small cello and bass shop in the hills of Vermont.
