Glad to call Rick, Joe and Bill brothers in music and life.
The latest CD from the compositionally and melodically oriented, free-improv, genre-bending, collective jazz quartet, once again touching rarely experienced and emotionally beautiful realms. Rick Savage – trumpet/flugelhorn, Joe Vincent Tranchina – keyboard, Bill McCrossen – bass & Michael D’Agostino – drums. INNERrOUTe | FOURMATION: An equal mix of improv and fusion leavened with taking their time yields a very interesting new set… Tasty stuff dedicated to pushing the boundaries of where certain forms of jazz lie, this crew gives you an unvarnished and uncommercial look behind the curtain where the muse is what it’s all about. A wonderful, wild ride whose chops keep you riveted throughout. —Chris Spector, midwestrecord.com
INNERrOUTe…presents a unique voice in the free improv jazz and jam band tradition. For a true experience with the finest in improvisation, listen in – and feel what it does. —Grady Harp, ***** Amazon Available at www.innerroute.net CD Baby iTunes Planet Arts and other outlets and digital download sites

Nick Planner:guitar(only love)
Gabe Valle:violin(sarah lane)
Robert Kopec:upright bass(the distance, sarah lane)
In this drum solo, I’m working out some ideas in a free improvisation, between different rhythms. Working on some free playing over a steady hi-hat pulse. I’m playing a Brady Jarrah kit. Really nice tones from this unique wood from Australia. The healing drum!
