Rick's Picks of the Week: Sean Hutchinson's STILL LIFE

Rick's Picks of the Week is Sean Hutchinson's STILL LIFE CD Release Concert on Wednesday, August 24th at 7:30, on the Mainstage at The Triple Door.

Sean Hutchinson's STILL LIFE blends acoustic with electronic ambience to create a sonic world where machine-like drum beats, melodic bass lines and piano textures develop singable melodies and improvisational displays. STILL LIFE encompasses influences by the giants of rock including the Beatles and Wilco, but also incorporates the great jazz trio units of Brad Mehldau, Bill Evans and Ahmad Jamal, yet somehow works in the emotional intensity and electronic edge of Radiohead.

The members involved in STILL LIFE all share the unique perspective of individually being both in-demand sidemen as well as bandleaders, and drawing form this experience, each player serves the collective sound, but does so in their own highly personalized way. All songs are originally composed by the band members, apart from a few choice covers by the likes of David Bowie, Radiohead and the Beatles.

Listen to Sean Hutchinson's STILL LIFE and attend the CD Release show August 24th at 7:30 on the Mainstage!
