SKERIK’S SYNCOPATED TAINT SEPTET | Live At The Triple Door

SKERIK’S SYNCOPATED TAINT SEPTET…Live At The Triple Door

It’s hard to keep a seven piece band on the road these days, so unfortunately SKERIK’S SYNCOPATED TAINT SEPTET doesn’t get to tour as much as they’d like. In fact, at this point it’s become a positively rare occurrence. However, Skerik has been sitting on this amazing recording of a SST7 performance multi-tracked by Mell Dettmer at the Seattle jazz venue The Triple Door’s opening night in 2003. The Royal Potato Family has stepped up to release this gem simply entitled Live At The Triple Door. It will be available in stores and online on May 25.
SST7 will play two rare shows in Seattle to celebrate the release at, where else, The Triple Door on Thursday, May 20 and Friday, May 21.
As JAZZ TIMES has said: “The five-horn frontline of Skerik’s Syncopated Taint Septet, led by the one-named Skerik on tenor sax, can make gripping chaos from contrary motion or craft harmonies at once soft and rich. Joe Doria’s Hammond B3 and the drum work of John Wicks solidify the bass lines and amplify the funk and hip-hop rhythms that drive so many of the septet’s tunes. But what sets the Syncopated Tainters apart from mere jam-masters is their command of ensemble writing and musical structure—almost every song has some delicious, mesmerizing twist that keeps you listening for more.”
