Artist Biographies:

"Elliot Humberto Kavee has performed/recorded ground-breaking new music with Omar Sosa, Joseph Jarman, Henry Threadgill, Steve Coleman, Don Cherry, Cecil Taylor, Francis Wong, Ben Goldberg, John Tchicai, Glenn Horiuchi, Elliot Sharp, Tim Berne, Jon Jang, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Vijay Iyer, and his own projects. Before moving to New York, he was the drummer of choice among the San Francisco Bay Area's most gifted creative musicians, playing on over 40 critically acclaimed recordings. In addition, Kavee was a musician, composer, musical director, actor and writer with the Tony award-winning San Francisco Mime Troupe for seven years - the only musical director in the group's 40 year history to win a dramalogue award. He was a percussionist, cellist and composer with the Club Foot Orchestra, who performed their score for G.W. Pabst's Pandora's Box at Lincoln Center. His collaboration with Asian-American Jazz pioneer Francis Wong has yielded 20 recordings and countless performances. As a founding member of the trail-blazing Omar Sosa Sextet, Kavee recorded four CD's and has toured the world. For his debut recording as a solo performer (on Eliasound records), "not only did Kavee make his skin and metallic percussion instruments sing by effecting a polytimbral/polyrhythmic approach, he further mixed up the program by doubling on cello. (Yes: drums and strings, one player, at the same time.")"- SF Weekly

descriptions, reviews, &c.
"Simulated Progress significantly ups the ante from the band’s 2002 debut Your Life Flashes, in no small part due to the additional compositional contributions of Kavee and new saxophonist Steve Lehman alongside those of Iyer, and the sonic expertise of noted hip-hop & rock producer Scott Harding (aka Scotty Hard). From the understated resolve of “Infogee Dub” to the visceral power of “Gaudi” and the stealth navigation of “Trips”, it becomes clear that this ensemble is on to something new, challenging, and immensely satisfying: a coherent, organic music that is miraculously ordered in some places, deceptively chaotic in others, and always masterfully arranged for this rare instrumentation."-Pi Recordings
