"span"About the Artist
"span"Defying all labels, The Revolution Ensemble draws on a range of musical styles from jazz to ramp;b, and country, synthesizing them into a new POST-GENRE tradition. Composer/pianist/vocalist Peter Saltzman formed The Revolution Ensemble in 1997 and the group has been shaking up all sorts of musical traditions ever since.
"span"Their music encompasses the groove of contemporary American urban music, the improvisational freedom of jazz, the structural complexity and tonal color of classical music, the raw energy of rock, the irreverence of the Avant Garde, and the lyricism of popular American song. Even with the constantly shifting (and sometimes simultaneous) textures the music of TRE remains highly accessible.
