. Mark Egan has a unique fretless bass sound and style that is both distinctive and versatile, making him one of the most in-demand electric bassists in music today. Egan has recorded and toured with the likes of the Pat Metheny Group, Sting, Roger Daltry, Stan Getz, and Bill Evans, just to name a few. John Hart is a well-known artist in the world of jazz, having performed with dozens of top performers, including Brian Blade’s Fellowship, The Maria Schneider Big Band, Teramasu Hino, and dozens of other jazz legends. Featured in Drummer World Top 500 List of all time drummers, Karl Latham is a staple in the European modern jazz scene, appearing regularly with such music icons as Bernie Worrell and Johnny Winter.

Embracing jazz, rock, Brazilian, funk and world music sensibilities, Unit 1 takes the listener on a highly improvisational journey, creating modern interpretations of nine jazz Standards reminiscent of The Police, Tony Williams Lifetime, and Miles Davis’ Live Evil. Stand-out tracks include “Willow Weep for Me,” “St. Thomas,” and “Bemsha Swing.” This highly anticipated release features 70+ minutes of pure creative jamming interaction.

Unit 1 was recorded live from three performances at the club Bula in Newtown, NJ.
