Speed of Three & Fries/Greenfield Quintet
[Speed of Three] is the come together of three adventurous and broad-minded improvisers that explore the abstract and eccentric sides of music. The combination of trumpeter Danny Gouker’s ingenious mind, drummer Robert Martino’s unique palette of sounds and vibraphonist Patricia Franceschy’s virtuosity make this collaboration persuasive and extraordinary.
The Fries/Greenfield Quintet is a newly-spawned collaboration between guitarist Bill Fries, saxophonist Sam Greenfield, pianist James Santangelo, bassist Sandy Eldred, and drummer Kevin Daly. This band is interested in playing well-crafted, contemporary jazz that draws upon a wide variety of compositional influences. They are always striving to find new ideas to assist them in creating a fresh, unique musical space as these five musicians get to share their exciting original music among friends and music fans throughout the greater Philadelphia area.
