"JOE MORRIS is an American jazz guitarist, bassist, improvisor and composer. Morris is perhaps the most significant guitarist to play free jazz since Sonny Sharrock. Morris has stated that his flowing single-note technique was inspired more by traditional African musics, and by saxophone players like Eric Dolphy and Jimmy Lyons, than by other guitarists. He considers Cecil Taylor, Eric Dolphy, Leroy Jenkins, Thelonious Monk, Jimi Hendrix, and West African string music as major influences.[3] He does not use distortion or effects, preferring a "clean" sound, but has made occasional use of a serrated pick to "bow" the strings of his guitar, creating an otherworldly, harmonic-rich sound. He also plays banjo and banjo-uke, and since 2000 has increasingly focused on playing bass."-Wikipedia

"CHRIS CRETELLA is a guitarist, composer and improvisor working out of New Haven, CT. He holds a BA in music from Southern Connecticut State University and an MM in contemporary improvisation from The New England Conservatory of Music where he studied with Joe Morris and Anthony Coleman. Chris has performed in the United States and Europe with Joe Morris, Anthony Coleman, Mary Halvorson, Gary Lucas and Rhys Chatham. Chris has released several albums over the past few years as a leader or collaborator."-Chris Cretella website
