Fellow Hominids is the most recent project of saxophonist and composer Cory Wright, featuring jazz and improv veterans John Schott and John Finkbeiner on guitars and Jordan Glenn on drums. The compositions run the gamut from meditative and minimal to sharply tailored grooves to blunderbuss attacks – a piece might provide a wide open field, a tight rope, or a wrestling pit for the group’s interactions. These four Bay Area musicians have played together in a wide variety of settings and configurations over the past 15 years and a feeling of camaraderie and playfulness informs all of the band’s impulses and musical decisions.
