Iowa City, Iowa (July 1, 2017)
Ye Olde explores progressive rock influences, faux-medieval architecture and surrealistic notions of a Brooklyn that never was. From trombonist and composer Jacob Garchik comes a fantastical and sublime work of the imagination. Ye Olde is a superband of three of Brooklyn’s baddest guitar heroes, let loose in a funhouse, playing ping pong with our ears: guitarists Mary Halvorson, Ava Mendoza and Jonathan Goldberger are joined by drummer Vinnie Sperrazza and Garchik on trombone.
Jacob Garchik, multi-instrumentalist, composer, and arranger, was born in San Francisco and has lived in New York since 1994. In 2013 he was named a “Rising Star” in the Downbeat Magazine Jazz Critic’s Poll.
