Kyle Hardy Group
Saturday - December, 02 @ 10:00pm
Saxophonist and composer Kyle Hardy has been an active member of the Maine music community for over a decade. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Music Performance with a concentration in Jazz Studies from the University of Southern Maine. Upon graduating, Kyle moved to Portland where he began to search for his own unique saxophone sound and style.
Throughout his career, Kyle has performed with many prominent bands including New York-based jam band Soulive, The Rustic Overtones, the Portland Jazz Orchestra, the Fogcutters, Raging Brass Reggae Band, Grupo Esperanza, and the Steve Grover Quartet. Kyle's soulful way of playing has been captured on multiple recordings, most recently on his 2016 album release, The Kyle Hardy Group.
The new trio, featuring guitarist Tony Gaboury and Jan van Voorst van Beest, explores the space between freedom and form. Taking inspiration from the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Rudder, and Kneebody, the group tries to make each performance a fresh approach to playing original music and standards.
