"Eminently quirky... Drumheller's music is both grandly swinging and bizarre at turns. ....as striking, iconoclastic and superb as any group pushing the boundaries of jazz and improvised music today."-Matthew Sumera, All About Jazz

"DRUMHELLER is a quintet of jazz composer/performers who have worked together since 2003. The music we play is jazz, drawing from its entire tradition (from traditional to avant-garde) and also drawing from our diverse experiences in free improvisation, folk, notated music, punk and groove music. We embrace collective and solo improvisation strategies, with compositions that range from short sketches used as jumping off points for free improvisation to through-composed pieces. As a collective of individual composers, we strive to address the requirements of each composition, while creating a unified vision of what Drumheller's music is. Drumheller has released 3 critically acclaimed CDs on the rat-drifting label, "Drumheller" (2004), "Wives" (2006) and "Glint" (2010)."-Drumheller
