BAKU is an improvisational ensemble comprised of musicians dedicated to the art of spontaneous composition. The band’s music combines contemplative ambient structures and melodies with a strong yet relaxing rhythmic pulse. BAKU will be playing unique and totally improvised Jambient Soundscapes: a synthesis of jazz, Afro beat, Middle Eastern, and other World influences and rhythms.
BAKU was selected as the name of the ensemble to honor the capital of Azerbaijan, which marks the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe and its diverse cultural and musical influences.
BAKU is made up of the following musicians:
Harrison Goldberg, saxophones and percussion
Chris Doering, 7-string guitar and guitar synthesizer
Tim Mueller, 6-string guitar and guitar synthesizer
David French, upright bass and percussion
Nancy Feehan, cajon and percussion
Join in this celebration of musical discovery as BAKU takes you on a surprising and unpredictable creative journey.
