Marilyn Crispell has been a composer and performer of contemporary improvised music since 1978. For ten years, she was a member of the Anthony Braxton Quartet and the Reggie Workman Ensemble, and she has performed and recorded extensively as a soloist and with players on the American and international jazz scene, also working with dancers, poets, film-makers and visual artists, and teaching workshops in improvisation. She has been the recipient of three New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship grants, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust composition commission.

The trio of Jason Stein (bass clarinet), Damon Smith (double bass), and Adam Shead (drums) features some of the most energizing, creative, and prolific musicians currently working in the fields of jazz and improvised music. The trio has toured extensively throughout the United States since the release of their debut album Volumes & Surfaces (April, 2022) on the Balance Point Acoustics record label. Receiving institutional support from such organizations as South Arts, the Doris Duke Charitable foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. The group has been described as "undiluted free jazz with energy as its calling card and attention as its driver" by Mark Corroto of All About Jazz.

Jason Stein is among the mere handful of improvisers who play the bass clarinet exclusively. Stein leads the acclaimed trio Locksmith Isidore as well as his own quartet. He contributes to several of the leading bands on Chicagos new-music scene and has brought a vital voice to the freest of free-jazz jams. Steins playing showcases an extraordinary expertise on the bass clarinet, which ranges from powerful post-bop lines to ear-grabbing wails in the altissimo range. Chicago writer Neil Tesser notes that Steins playing has a rawboned swagger particular to Chicago jazz in all its manifestations  from the trad playing of Bud Freeman and Jimmy McPartland in the 20s, through the tenor titans of the 50s, through the adventurers who formed the AACM in the 60s, and right up to the citys renowned modern cadre of new-music improvisers. Stein moved to Chicago in 2005 and has since recorded for such labels as Leo, Delmark, Not Two, Atavistic, 482 Music, Clean Feed, Astral Spirits, and Northern Spy.  Stein has performed throughout the US and Europe as both a bandleader and sideman and has amassed a discography of over 40 albums.

Damon Smith is a New York City based pianist, songwriter, and improviser. He's a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music and performs as a sideman and performer with the legendary "Losers Lounge" series at Joe's Pub (2014 onward). He started his career at the School of Rock, performing and touring with artists such as Jon Anderson of Yes, Napoleon Murphy Brock of Frank Zappa's band, and Andrew W.K. He's also toured as a pianist with artists such as T.3 and Burlap to Cashmere. He's played his original music at Highline Ballroom, the Knitting Factory, CBGB's, and Webster Hall, and as a sideman in festivals such as Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and Zappanale. His debut solo album, "Intimate Machinery," came out on ERASED! tapes in December 2017. His second album "God of the Grid" came out in March 2019, which prompted NPR's Here and Now to state: "excited for what he has next." The "River of Regret" EP followed in November 2020.

Adam Shead is an educator, administrator, percussionist, and composer based in Chicago, IL who holds a Bachelors of Music from Columbia College Chicago in Instrumental Performance as well as a Masters of Music in Contemporary Improvisation and a Graduate Certificate in World Performance Studies from The University of Michigan
