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.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
