Trio Xolo @ An Die Musik

DM-tenor saxophone

Zachary Swanson-bass

Dalius Naujo-drums

Trio Xolo is a telepathic improvising unit, based in Baltimore & Brooklyn. This performance will follow our first recording session at Big Orange Sheep Studio, for projected release later in 2019. Zach Swanson is my longest musical collaborator, boasting a huge tone & personal language that spans the diverse landscape of improvised music. Dalius Naujo is a dynamic, creative, and virtuosic drummer, in a league of his own.
