Our monthly residency with Mark de Clive-Lowe’s CHURCH NYC is about to celebrate its 1-Year Anniversary this Friday 12/7/12 at DROM with special guests including Questlove, Casey Benjamin, Mark Kelley, Nate Smith, and more!

The ability to preserve the individual voices of musicians in a group format, where cooperation is fluid enough for them to work simultaneously as a well-oiled and cohesive sound machine, is what may be most immediately special about James Farm. There are and have been many great groups recording with the terrible habit of organizing or playing in a manner that encourages someone’s performance to get lost in the sauce, never to the point of fostering invisibility, but very often failing to emphasize and utilize the talents of each player equally. That does not occur with James Farm, the double-trio comprised of two bandleaders, Joshua Redman and pianist Aaron Parks, playing with the shared rhythm section of bassist Matt Penman and drummer Eric Harland.
