The Inbetweens @ Lovin Cup 9/21/10

I finally got my full set.  This is my favorite Mike Gamble project that I've seen.  However, there are many Mike Gamble projects that I've never seen since he usually plays in Brooklyn.

It's an awesome trio.  The music is beyond jazz, it's got a little of a psychedelic feel, but that's not the best way to describe it, either.  It's new and creative music that would appeal to a lot of people, not just the experimental music crowd.  I see from their myspace page that they selected experimental/indie/nu jazz as the genre. 

The venue is wonderful and raises the bar.  Having continuous live music is huge.  The drinks are Manhattan prices and not quite as strong as I like, but I can deal.

THE INBETWEENS emerged in the summer of 2002, from the roots of collective improvisation, curiosity, and like minds. Before they were the Tweens, they each lived in Boston, where they each spent time gigging and studying at the New England Conservatory of Music with gurus such as Bob Moses, George Garzone, John Lockwood, and John Abercrombie. In the fall of 02' the boys migrated to Brooklyn, where they each spent an entire year eating, sleeping, and rehearsing in a cozy lil' 3-bedroom apartment, appropriately lodged "inbetween" Brooklyn's own Prospect Park and Greenwood Cemetery. Since then the trio has completed a self-titled debut album at Clinton Recording Studios, in Manhattan, and has been performing regularly in the Northeast and the midwest. Some listeners consider them a power trio, but their energetic musical conversations draw in people from all backgrounds: popular to improvised. The Inbetweens are not afraid to enter uncharted territories. They trust each other and take risks for the sake of the music.
