Produced with a generous grant from 4Culture, Hardcoretet is a collection of eight genre-bending original compositions that draw their inspiration from 50 years of American music. Listeners will hear the funk influences of Herbie Hancock, the rock energy of Soundgarden, and the modern jazz intricacy of Chris Potter Underground blended together by a band comprised of some of Seattle’s most active musicians.
Hardcoretet is Art Brown (sax), Aaron Otheim (keys), Tim Carey (bass), and Tarik Abouzied (drums). Members of the band have performed both nationally and around the globe with projects and artists encompassing a wide array of genres including Allen Stone, McTuff, Polyrhythmics, Reptet, Jovino Santos Neto, Theoretics and many others. They have shared the stage with and opened for world-renowned artists Skerik, Cuong Vu, Mike Stern, Charlie Hunter, Marco Benevento, Bobby Previte and Bill Frisell. Read more…
