 “you can hear how each artist compliments the other, as they flourish in the studio, sending the listener deep into the kosmische jazz stratosphere. I could not recommend this one enough.”

Listen & purchase Speak, Moment

“the album’s hypnotic rhythms and chaotic tapestries of noise recall Sonny Sharrock and co., sounding both free and out but also focused and locked in.” - Aquarium Drunkard

“Lightly psychedelic, ruminative jazz that’s not afraid to get a little noisy and dirty… this album is a textural dream, hypnotic and roaming in equal measure.” -
Ana Gavrilovska

"[These are] the sounds of discovery, surprise and uncommon communion. It takes chops to pull that off, but it also requires a lot of open-mindedness. Their minds were wide open, like the music that resulted." -
Something Else

“The Spring is already getting packed full of essentials and this collaboration between three modern masters is climbing the list fast.” -
Raven Sings The Blues


Entirely improvised in the afternoon of their first meeting, Speak, Moment cascades from gorgeous mountaintop revelation fanfare to rough hewn and ragged noise. Altogether, it is an opening salvo, a profound and unrepeatable moment in the lives of these three remarkable musicians. Dave Harrington, Max Jaffe, Patrick Shiroishi have bewilderingly stacked CVs and accolades from here to the moon. Together, on 𝘚𝘱𝘦𝘢𝘬, 𝘔𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘯𝘵, they establish hypnotic and richly textured guitar-driven tapestries colored with the effervescent thread of a yearning saxophone melody that might be torn loose in an instant by thunderous percussion or febrile grooves.
