Velocity

Velocity is a quartet based out of Tacoma, Washington that siphons off of a variety of musical styles including jazz, funk and fusion. The music combines hard-hitting grooves and hook melodies with open improvisation. The energetic original compositions are largely written by keyboardist Peter Adams, and arranged by Peter Adams and Brian Smith. Common time is uncommon with Velocity. Melodies are twisted and warped around each other. Solos are aggressive, yet bind the compositions to a set of defined rules and formulas. The sounds that you expect are not the sounds you get. And that’s just the way we like it. Peter Adams / Keyboard Cliff Colón / Saxophone Brian Smith / Drums Rob Hutchinson / Bass
