Since joining forces to form Spin Cycle in Fall of 2016, drummer Scott Neumann and saxophonist Tom Christensen have been serving up an eclectic blend of jazz featuring original compositions by both musicians. Featuring Pete McCann (guitar) and Phil Palombi (bass), both critically acclaimed musicians and bandleaders in their own right, the band continues to highlight their flexibility and capacity to reach audiences with their unique hybrid of jazz, funk and world music. On any given song, you might encounter the modal influence of John Coltrane, the second-line funk of New Orleans, or the edgy experimentation of free jazz.
Scott and Tom have performed in all kinds of settings including the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Gene Perla/David Liebman’s Lighthouse Project, Maria Schneider, Joe Lovano, the Jazz Mandolin Project, the Gil Evans Project and with Madeleine Peyroux. They draw from this pool of very eclectic experiences to help form their conception and band-leading abilities with Spin Cycle.
