This show celebrates the release of Curtis Hasselbring’s new album, Number Stations, which is inspired by mysterious shortwave radio stations that seem to exist for the purpose of providing foreign agents from a variety of countries coded information. In a similar way, Hasselbring’s music provides the musicians in this all-star ensemble information regarding their alliances, covert missions and espionage activities via composed music and improvisational stratagems. Fueled by the dual drumming of Ches Smith and Satoshi Takeishi, Hasselbring’s music is highly propulsive while at the same time maintaining elements of dark humor, ambient spaciousness and highly choreographed ensemble playing.

The core of this ensemble is Curtis’s longstanding band, the New Mellow Edwards, which consists of Curtis (trombone, guitar), Chris Speed(tenor saxophone and clarinet), Trevor Dunn (basses) and Ches Smith. For this project, he has added Mary Halvorson (guitar), Matt Moran(vibraphone) and Satoshi Takeishi (drums, percussion) and the chemistry of this melding of creative humans is quite exciting.
