Heart of the Ghost is an improvisational unit from the Baltimore/Washington area. Comprised of Jarrett Gilgore (Alto Saxophone), Luke Stewart (Double Bass) and Ian McColm (Drums), this group is the culmination of years of encircling orbits. Collectively encompassing a massive variety of interests and collaborators including James Brandon Lewis, Jaimie Branch, Tashi Dorji, and Dave Rempis. Themselves known players in the circles of improvised music; these three find common ground within their individual vocabularies: an aim to deconstruct and reshape canonized creative tropes into a new & stunning language.

We're always happy to have CGI Jesus back to Black Iris. Richmond, Va's favorite Thrash-jazz/Chamber-Punk outfit. Composer Kevin Eichenberger uses a unique mix of songwriting, counterpoint, and improvisation to create a distinct listening experience. They're high energy, ambitious and a whole lot of fun!
