“Like the best of the younger groups, Earprint extends the jazz traditions while at the same time working them into hip, freewheeling new shapes. This debut recording captures a lot of the energy and sense of possibility of modern jazz.” – Jerome Wilson, All About Jazz (4 stars)
With an ear aimed firmly toward the underground, Earprint is a four-part chordless creative collective who make music that is at least nominally for listening. Though they’re not out to save the world, or even modern jazz, they aim to at least turn a head or two with their aggressively melodic, shamelessly youthful approach. Earprint had won the #1 debut album in the 2016 NPR critics poll and much critical acclaim, including 4 stars from Downbeat magazine.
