No Chordtet’s debut recording was featured on Jazz After Hours the nationally syndicated NPR radio show, as well as Tom Reney’s Jazz Alamode on WFCR among others.
The group’s members are Dave Santoro bass, Tom Melito drums, Peter McEachern trombone and George Sovak saxophones. The members are stalwarts of the CT/NY Jazz scene and have international credits as well. The ensemble performs original compositions as well as works of other composers, and does not use a chordal instrument to outline the harmonic material, but rather the bass and horns serve this function.
The group plays it’s unique brand of jazz while referencing the time honored tradition of the art form.
Collectively the members of the group have played on over 100 CD’s on labels such as Blue Note, Concord, Polygram, Knitting Factory, Steeplechase and Red Records.
