Earnest performers, yet with a waggish sense of humor, Slumgum weaves standards and original compositions into an evening of fun, unpredictable improvisation. With each performance, they bring a spontaneity that takes the audience through exciting yet accessible sonic territories. A quartet of sax, bass, piano, and drums, Slumgum was formed in 2006 when its members met at California Institute of the Arts. Since then, their innovative spirit has developed into a distinct voice as a band.
