Saturday - November, 11 @ 6:00pm

Triage is a Philadelphia-based trio made up of Jarrett Gilgore on alto saxophone, Noah Jarrett on
upright bass, and Kevin Ripley on drums. The trio plays with the vision of creating
deep, uncompromising, and relevant improvised music. The lack of chordal
instruments allows every performance to evolve organically, note by note, without
confinement to chords and/or melodies and/or moods.
Triage plays mostly original music, with smatterings of free jazz greats, such
as Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, John Tchicai, Dewey Redman, Anthony Braxton,
etc. From moment to moment, their music can alternate between meditative and
cacophonous, animated and reminiscent, chamber-like and contrapuntal, fluid and
odd-metered, all the while speaking with an honest voice and keeping an open
musical perspective.
