Gene Ess Quartet featuring Sam Newsome, Harvie S, and E.J. Strickland performing at Freddy's Backroom, Brooklyn - May 30, 2006 9PM

A rare combination of facility and emotion drives Sandbox and Sanctum with energy and unrelenting genius of composition. Ess has put together a fascinating quartet featuring Sam Newsome (sax), E.J. Strickland (drums), and Harvie S (bass). Ess's out of the box, hard driving, modern guitar lines create a release filled with depth and angular colors. Sandbox and Sanctum is a release for the hard-core listener that expects superior musicianship and cerebral interaction. Ess has caught the eye of some of the best in the business, appearing with A-list players at each of his events.

Join Gene Ess (guitar) and his quartet: Sam Newsome - sax, Harvie S - bass, EJ Strickland - drums.
