Titus co lead the group Delawareness a chamber jazz trio that played extensively in Toronto and Montreal and at festivals. That project culminated in the recording of the CD Excellent in Woe featuring Titus with George Koller on bass and Larry Lewis on classical guitar. In early 2006 he formed a jazz group, The Titus Abbott Collective which has been received enthusiastically wherever they perform. The collective which has an evolving personnel comes out of the vibrant Alt Jazz scene of NYC and Brooklyn presenting creative improvised music that is always searching for a fresh "in the moment" connection. Collaborations include performances with the outstanding pianists Curtis Clark and Frank Carlberg and the late Oud Master Al Gardner.

Scott Kiefner is a young, in demand bassist on the seacoast of ME. He plays with several groups including Bangkok Disco, Sojoy, the Nicho Gallo Trio, Steve Grover Quintet, and many other collaborations. He graduated from McGill University in Montreal with a degree in bass performance. Scott's fondness of the avant garde has led to many performances of creative improvised music such as the Ears and Eyes collaboration with artist Roger Goldenberg.
