Triage

Triage is a trio made up of Jarrett Gilgore on alto saxophone, Noah Jarrett on upright bass, and Kevin Ripley on drums. The trio plays with the vision of creating deep, uncompromising, and relevant improvised music. The lack of chordal instruments allows every performance to evolve organically, note by note, without confinement to chords and/or melodies and/or moods. Triage plays mostly original music, with smatterings of free jazz greats, such as Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, John Tchicai, Dewey Redman, Anthony Braxton, etc. From moment to moment, their music can alternate between meditative and cacophonous, animated and reminiscent, chamber-like and contrapuntal, fluid and odd-metered, all the while speaking with an honest voice and keeping an open musical perspective.
