" ... Drummer Dana Hall is a major revelation, a powerhouse ..."
-Portland Phoenix

His performing credits include Branford Marsalis, Ray Charles, Roy Hargrove, Joshua Redman, Orbert Davis, Horace Silver, Michael Brecker, Nicholas Payton, Kurt Elling, Benny Green, Frank Foster and Betty Carter, among others. Mr. Hall is a member of the Terell Stafford Quintet and the Music Director of the Chicago Jazz Ensemble. Additionally, he is a former regular member of the Carnegie Hall Jazz Band under the direction of Jon Faddis and has served as an extra in the percussion sections of the Des Moines and Cedar Rapids Symphonies.

His debut recording for Origin Records is entitled, Into the Light.

Ted Poor

Ted Poor's Triggerfish

Ted Poor - drums; Cuong Vu - trumpet; Eric Revis - bass

As an in-demand sideman, Ted Poor has appeared on dozens of recordings and has shared the stage with many world renowned artists such as Kurt Rosenwinkel, Bill Frisell, Mark Turner, Chris Potter, Kenny Werner, Maria Schneider, Aaron Parks and Ralph Alessi. As a guest soloist and educator, Poor has held residencies at, among others, the Eastman School of Music, Berklee College of Music, Cal Arts, Lawrence University, the University of Oregon, and the HR Big Band of Frankfurt. He is currently an Artist in Residence at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Ted has toured the world over and is a regular member of many bands, including those of Grammy award winning trumpeter Cuong Vu, guitarist Ben Monder, Bad Touch, and the Respect Sextet. Ted's most recent project as a leader is called Mt. Varnum. Formed in August of 2011, Mt. Varnum reconciles a life-long love of deep swing with an equally earnest adoration of classic and indie rock. The band's forthcoming debut release "Wounded Caroline" is a powerful and complete manifestation of that union.

Cavity Fang

Cavity Fang

Michael Coleman - keyboards; Luke Bergman - guitar; Ben Goldberg - clarinet; Jordan Glenn - drums; Evan Woodle - drums; Chris Icasiano - drums

CavityFang was dreamed into creation by keyboardist/composer Michael Coleman. While onstage at the Hollywood Bowl backing the experimental pop group tUnE-yArDs along with three exceptional drummers, Jordan Glenn, Hamir Atwal, and Sam Ospovat, Coleman had a revelation. He saw that by combining the musical power of these three he could create a truly demented jazz sound never before heard by human ears. Upon returning to Oakland, Coleman locked himself in the studio and composed the CavityFang suite. The pieces were conceived in the order they are played and take the listener on a sonic journey exploring the multifarious functions of the drumset and an array of musical traditions. If you listen carefully, you will hear the influence of Free Jazz, Captain Beefheart, Haitian carnival music, Jimi Hendrix, and Ligeti as well as Coleman's own distinct musical language developed through work with his trio, Beep, and his quartet, Arts & Sciences.
