Established in 2007 this quintet plays mainly compositions by the leader Jesse Malone. The repertoire is stylistically varied, ranging from subdued and lyrical to raucous and intense to cerebral. And where do the nerds fit in? Well, starting with a suite of tunes (not actually a suite) named for the tenets of Object Oriented Programming much of the repertoire for this group seems to be inspired by if not named after things computer programmers might talk about. That’s just the way it turned out.

Jesse Malone – Trumpet

Ben Dietschi – Sax
