Burnt Sugar at Real Art Ways

Tomorrow night, as part of the Creative Cocktail Hour, jazz fusion band Burnt Sugar finds its way to Real Art Ways in Hartford. Burnt Sugar is a collection of prominent musicians who were originally formed as a Bitches Brew inspired band, but quickly morphed into something all it's own. The group has 17 members, all of which are masters of their instruments. There are some big names, including DJ Mutamassik; trumpeter Lewis ‘Flip’ Barnes, and bassist Jared Nickerson who has toured and recorded with The The. As they put it, they're "a territory band, a neo-tribal thang, a community hang, a society music guild aspiring to the condition of all that is molten, glacial, racial, spacial, oceanic, mythic, antiphonal and telepathic." It's sure to be a really amazing night of incredible music that transcends description or classification.
