Sons of Daughters
Everybody’s mother is somebody’s daughter, brother. Dig?
Sons Of Daughters features Berklee College of Music alums Devin Drobka (drums NYC) and Aaron Darrell (bass/vocals Boston) as well as New School for Jazz alum and John Coltrane Foundation scholarship winner Patrick Breiner (sax/clarinet/vocals Connecticut). What began in 2010 as a chordless jazz trio has since evolved into a three-headed improvising monster. Breiner, Darrell, and Drobka each contribute compositions ranging from wistful rubato ballades to reckless free jazz avalanches.
"They looked like they used words like 'dig' and 'hep' unironically. They played like their hands were on fire."
- David Fitzgerald, Athens Flagpole (Athens, GA)
"[Sons Of Daughters] connected improvisation with melody with a sense of purpose without limits. Their use of voice as an instrument added another element to the famed pianoless jazz trio formation.”
- David Henry, Director of Programs , Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (Boston, MA)
