Bigmouth, led by bassist and composer Chris Lightcap, features the profoundly original tenor saxophonists, Tony Malaby and Chris Cheek, the multifaceted genius of keyboardist Craig Taborn, and the creative powerhouse drumming of Gerald Cleaver. The band's latest release, "Epicenter" was named one of 2015's top 10 releases of the year by the New York Times, the LA Times, NPR and many other publications. Lightcap received a CMA New Jazz Works grant in 2011 which culminated in "New York: Lost and Found," an extended work which was featured on Epicenter. The group has performed at major venues and festivals throughout the US and Europe including Earshot Jazz (Seattle), Saalfelden (Austria), North Sea (Netherlands) and Willisau (Switzerland).
