Philip Yaeger

Born in Northern Maine, Philip Yaeger learned to sing as soon as he could talk. Improvisation came naturally to him and by the age of fourteen he was playing engagements with a jazz trio - not an easy thing to accomplish in a town of ten thousand souls.

The stations of his life thus far: William Paterson University: B.A. or B.M. (I can never remember) in Jazz Performance; studied w/Ed Neumeister, Steve Turre, Conrad Herwig, Rufus Reid, et al).
New York City: the Lower East Side free scene - often as an apprentice/observer but also occasionally as a participant, also numerous work in soul, pop, rock and Afro-beat.
Philadelphia: that fantastic West Philly do-it-yourself scene, work with Tim Motzer, Ursula Rucker, Elliot Levin et al.
Graz, Austria: Master of Arts from the Arts University of Graz; further studies with Ed Neumeister and others.
Vienna, where he currently lives and happily works with whomever will have him

From there he went on to perform with Senegalese drummer Mor Thiam and blues legend Albert King.

MUSICIAN Born:

Sadiki Pierre

Sadiki Pierre is a talented upright bass player who is uniquely capable of playing and fusing almost any style of music including classical, jazz, latin, reggae and R&B. When he first started playing the upright bass, he had no interest in actually learning the instrument and instead was only looking for a way to get out of his sixth grade class. Fortunately, he chose the right distraction from his schoolwork. It soon became apparent that he was quite musically adept. Although his parents could not initially afford to buy him his own instrument and pay for private lessons, he was still chosen to perform with the New York State School Music Association’s All-State Orchestra in addition to performing with another prestigious student orchestra throughout Europe. Despite the encouragement of those closest to him to study at a school like Juilliard or Berklee to become a full-time musician, Sadiki chose to attend an aviation school called Daniel Webster College in order to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a professional pilot

MUSICIAN Born:

Robert Dunn

I was born into the sort of family that made me want to stay by myself in my room practicing guitar & writing songs. Somehow I developed this mindset where I felt drawn to the surreal/abstract so I gravitated to music that that was that way (psychedelic, Hendrix, Doors, Beatles, etc.) I began studying jazz and as I progressed through bebop, hard bop, modal and into the 'avant garde' or free jazz I began to absorb these genres and developed my own musical approach. I did put together musical units mostly in LA, and where I currently reside - the San Francisco Bay Area that did attract some attention and this is what I am continuing to do to this day.
