Innocent When You Dream// The Long Straw @ Avant Garde

Innocent When You Dream:

“Innocent When You Dream is a singular and distinctive statement that stands out from the crowd.”– DR. STEVE KINIGSTEIN, JUST JAZZ GUITAR MAGAZINE

Innocent When You Dream brings a new element to Waits’ music while remaining true to its essence. The quintet interprets Waits’ stylistically diverse repertoire by creating instrumental versions of his most memorable songs. Using lyrical content and mood as the starting point for exploration, the band moves beyond the realm of covers creating a distinctive sound that draws from Jazz, rock, blues, World music and the avant-garde. The quintet has performed in NY area, LA and has been featured at notable Jazz clubs: The B-Flat (Berlin), Upstairs (Montreal) and The Rex (Toronto). Their first record “Celebrating The Music of Tom Waits” was release on Jazz Collective Records (2010) and their second recording “Dirt In The Ground” will be available May 2017.


The Long Straw:
