FreeNote Records is pleased to announce a live performance by the Fretless Brothers on Sunday, March 23rd at 8:15pm at ShapeShifter Lab, 18 Whitwell Place, Brooklyn, NY ($10).
The Fretless Brothers are the world's first Harmonic Series jazz group, using specially fretted guitars to stretch the language of jazz to 36 notes per octave.
The group has just released their debut CD, Footsteps
, which features Jon Catler
(La Monte Young) and Dane Johnson
(Hangmen) on 12-Tone Ultra Plus guitars, Hansford Rowe (Gong) on 12-Tone Ultra Plus bass, and Brian Chase (Yeah Yeah Yeahs) on tuned drums. The band both swings and rocks, and the new pitches result in never before heard chords, melodies, and Harmonic Clouds.
