JASON SEED STRINGTET
Members of the Milwaukee and Chicago Symphony Orchestras join pianist Marianne Parker and composer-guitarist Jason Seed to form the Jason Seed Stringtet, which has been performing Jason’s unique chamber music since 2008. The group formed alongside the Independent Music Award-winning Jason Seed Elixir Ensemble, a larger group which had a rock/jazz band sensibility. The more intimate Stringtet now brings Seed’s eclectic collection of classical crossover pieces to a wider audience. Some of the music has been featured on NPR’s Morning Edition, All Things Considered and Lake Effect, in the film Everglades of the North and more. With some pieces composed in recognizable traditional forms and others in as yet un-named categories, the music constantly surprises.

“A lot of people – fans of art-rock, jazz, classical and global sounds – are going to love this album. It’s one of the year’s best, whichever category you might think it fits (and realistically, it doesn’t really fit any, which helps explain why it’s so enjoyable).”
