Jazz: The Second Century -- Double Bill -- Byron Vannoy's Meridian & Pontius Pilots
**** Byron Vannoys Meridian
Byron Vannoy: drums
Chris Symer: bass
Kacey Evans: keyboards
Chris Spencer: guitar
Eric Barber: saxophones

After several years of steady and impressive growth as a player and leader, Byron Vannoy has developed a quintet sound that exemplifies impressively his sense of one direction jazz is taking in this century. He says: I believe this is music that could be representative of the 21st century because we are not ignoring any influence. If I heard something, I wrote it and developed it without considering the origin or the style.

Rooted in jazz and fueled by rock and popular music, Meridian performs both improvisation and composed sections. Vannoys writing embraces odd meters whose harmonic changes and vamps offer springboards for free playing. And, here, he has ideal partners for that.

**** Pontius Pilots
Victor Noriega: piano
Robert Nelson (aka E.R. DoN): Akai MPC 2000, midi programming

Pontius Pilots is an electro-acoustic project that combines live piano and keyboards with pre-recorded samples. A collaboration between pianist and composer Victor Noriega and producer-musician Robert Nelson (e.R.DoN), the duo marries an array of real-instrument samples and synthesized sounds in combination with the acoustic piano.

In recent years, Victor Noriega has emerged as one of the most impressive jazz pianists in the region. His compositions fuse classical and Filipino folk elements with a jazz aesthetic. e.R.DoN uses midi-sequences and original samples to create kinetic, captivating music, shifting and teetering between traditional and more experimental jazz elements.
