ABOUT

Curve is an ambitious attempt to bring together not only a myriad of styles, but also varied demographics of people. The founding members had been trying to find musicians who could not only have Pop sensibilities; lyrically as well as in arrangement, but wanted to also add the sophistication of Jazz in chord structure, musicianship and improvisation. The group plays many styles and does them with such a broad feel that each song flows beautifully into the next, in spite of the differing genres. There are catchy melodies married with chords that envelope you and pull you along. You will get to hear vocals and lyrical poetry and then be entranced by instrumentalists soloing with voices that keeps the music jazzy while still telling the story.
“I hoped to bring together differing groups of listeners; audiences who listen to classical, jazz and crooner styles, with younger kids who listen to edgy, pop dance music; and have both audiences see and appreciate the appealing aspects of all of these styles.”
