Mike Pride’s FROM BACTERIA TO BOYS

Mike Pride’s FROM BACTERIA TO BOYS trio Mike Pride- drums. Darius Jones- alto sax. Evan Lipson- bass.
Mike Pride’s FROM BACTERIA TO BOYS trio blurs the line between improvisation in a jazz idiom, modern hard-noise & 20 th/21st century classical music & modern art rock, all with an intensity and center of focus any one familiar with Pride’s music has come to expect. While a compositional framework is present in each performance, the set up and execution is unique to each individual space and concert. This band can hang with the harshest of harsh-noises, meta-rock, minimalist improvisation and modern classical presentations.
