Myra Melford's Snowy Egret (2012 - now) is an extension of two earlier ensembles, The Same River Twice (1995 - 2003), and Be Bread (2003 - 2011). For the past 19 years, they have been performing in concert halls and at jazz festivals throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, and India, and have made five critically-acclaimed CDs. They've just recorded a concert version of the music from Language of Dreams to be released in early 2015. "The Whole Tree Gone," featuring the music from the suite "The Whole Place Goes Up," written for a 2003-04 New Works Presentation Grant, was released on Firehouse 12 in January 2010. Snowy Egret will be performing at the Chicago Jazz Festival on Aug 29, 2014. They are available for workshops and master classes.
