THE HOT AT NIGHTS

The development of The Hot at Nights parallels that of the world’s most potentially destructive climatic occurrence: Global Warming. They are heavily influenced by the origins of jazz at the turn of the century, emblazoned by the raw and unbridled freedom of the 50′s and 60′s, and electrified by the external forcings of the 80′s. Chris Boerner (Foreign Exchange, Jeanne Jolly) on 8-string guitar, Matt Douglas (The Rosebuds, Erin McKeown, Harlequin) on woodwinds, and Nick Baglio (Jeanne Jolly, Foreign Exchange, Jean Morrison) on drums & keyboards make up the triumvirate of change. Even though there is a tiny contingency of Hot at Nights deniers, real and proven science has determined that they do, in fact, exist on a catastrophic level.

Their new album, entitled ¡Try This!, represents the next degree of The Hot at Nights’ exploration. Incorporating more penetrative keyboard sounds, stacked and looped saxes and woodwinds, 8-string guitar solos and sounds that rival the aggression of the Prevailing Westerlies, they have advanced the sound of an instrumental trio to a place where the listener is grappling with the origination of the sounds, processing the complexity of rhythm, and trying to control the incessant head nodding that ensues, all while making their best attempts to stay dry under the collar.

The Hot at Nights are Chris Boerner, Matt Douglas, and Nick Baglio. They came together in the Summer of 2010 to explore the sonic possibilities of an 8-string guitar-centered trio. Their first release, Nice Talk, was released in 2011. In 2012, they toured with producer Nicolay (The Foreign Exchange) in support of their collaborative recording Shibuya Session EP, where they played such notable venues as the Blue Note in NYC, Bohemian Caverns in Washington, D.C., and the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City. Look for their 2nd LP, ¡Try This!, in stores and online on October 22nd, 2013.

PURPLE

One word. Purple. Duane Simpson, Jesse Gentry, and Jian-Claude Mears, make up the Asheville, NC power trio that is known as Purple. This trio takes an eclectic range of popular music from the jazz, funk, soul, and pop idioms and blends it into a unique style and sound that is all their own. Their show will soothe you, rock you, challenge you, and make you wanna move.
