is a journey through a varied landscape
of music and sound on the edge of Jazz.
The expressive instrumentation and
thoughtful musicians produce music that
can be hauntingly beautiful or downright
mean, sometimes simultaneously.
is an open jazz group built with the
strength to explore new sonic spaces. It is
informed by a wide breadth of musical
history with a special charge from jazz,
classical, rock, new art music, and echoes
of R&B. Atlas charts new musical
pathways as it reacts to collisions of
matter, time, and space.
Atlas is a particular grouping of the the
New Haven Improvisers Collective, on the
side of the family.
