Tigersmilk is a full-improvising unit that surpasses the jazz-as-jazz sound for an individualist style steeped in a continuously unfolding mood. Made up of cornetist, electronicist and Brazilian-based laptop manipulator Rob Mazurek (Chicago Underground, Isotope 217, solo releases on Mego, Delmark and Moikai), Chicago-centered acoustic bassist Jason Roebke (Rapid Croche, Fred Lonberg-Holm Trio, Terminal 4) and Vancouver percussionist Dylan van der Schyff (Francois Houle, Talking Pitctures, John Butcher), Tigermsilk blends post-bop structures with buzzing electronics and abstract movement.
"The trio of Mazurek, Roebke, and van der Schyff makes free music accessible. Not saccharine or Splenda--more like Ornette Coleman's shocking 1959 recordings as heard through today's ears." --Mark Corroto, All About Jazz
