LarryVuckovich

Larry Vuckovich has won acclaim from critics and jazz audiences for his deeply imaginative style and repertoire heard at prestigious North American and European jazz clubs, concert halls and festivals. He is equally at home in world music/classically influenced modal jazz as he is with hard-swinging bebop, post-bop, contemporary jazz, and down-home blues. The New York Times notes that his unique outlook and collection of influences “set him apart from most pianists who are heard regularly in New York”. The Village Voice comments on his “book of piano gems that will keep you guessing.” The Toronto Globe and Mail calls him “a musician who sits apart from the rest by virtue…of his taste for both the exotic and the exquisite.”

Eric Golub is a multi-faceted string improviser who has been performing and recording on jazz viola and violin for more than 35 years, including featured performances alongside such artists as Tom Harrell, Bobby Hutcherson, Solar Plexus and Sadao Watanabe. Eric’s unique style draws upon his unusually diverse expertise in world music traditions, including Indonesian, Chinese and Japanese idioms, even as an accomplished Hawaiian singer. He contributed his authentic Balkan gypsy fiddle improvisations to the seminal globally-flavored jazz release “Blue Balkan” by Larry Vuckovich, with whom he continues to work closely to this day.
