Working in chamber jazz and contemporary improvisational forms, JENTSCH GROUP NO NET is a nine-piece performing ensemble - a lean subset of the composer’s jazz orchestra based in NYC: Jentsch Group Large. The nonet was born out of a NYSCA Individual Artist Composer Commission (premiere: The Kitchen in Brooklyn / 2012). Jentsch’s approach to composing for the group is to use original tunes as a point of departure for scripted thematic development and group improvisation. The operant musical language is "contemporary jazz," while also being inclusive of bi-tonality, the ECM aesthetic, written and improvised counterpoint informed by blues and European concert music, and sonorities and production values gleaned from the world of popular music.

Premiere report: The gig at ShapeShifter turned out very well...I like how the music came out, the band sounded great, and we captured full audio and 3 cams of video...pretty sure something special can be made out of all of it!
