Originally the rhythm section for Chicago's Horse's Ha, Stirrup brings Fred Lonberg-Holm, Nick Macri, and Charles Rumback together for collective works exploring deep grooves, moody harmonies, and extended structures.


Stirrup: Sewn (482 Music)
Label: 482 Music    
Released in: USA    

"Stirrup is Fred Lonberg-Holm, Nick Macri, and Charles Rumback. They first played together as "the shimmering rhythm section of the Horse's Ha," (Time Out Chicago) and decided to form their own trio in 2009 to explore deep grooves, moody harmonies, and extended structures. A true collective, all three write and arrange for the band with influences as varied as the list of bands and musicians Stirrup's members have worked with including Ken Vandermark, Mark Eitzel, Wilco, Via Tania, Anthony Braxton, Nina Nastasia, Hector Zazou, Jeremy Enigk, L'Altra, Boxhead Ensemble, Peter Brötzmann, and Laetitia Sadier (of Stereolab).

"To call this jazz is only partially accurate, and other poorly defined classifications (chamber jazz, post-rock) also miss the mark," says "It defies easy categorization not because it's innovative, but because it draws from several traditions without ever tipping its hat too conspicuously in any one direction or approaching pastiche. It's careful and deceptively adventurous, out music anyone can enjoy..."
