|The name of the Jazz Mandolin Project says a lot, but not the whole story, about this Burlington VT based trio.
The Jazz Mandolin Project has been touring coast-to-coast for four years developing a unique sound which brings the mandolin into modern jazz and bridges the audience gap between jazz lovers and jam-rock fans.
The group's second CD release documents a one-time-only, special edition of the JMP, recorded immediately after their "Tour de Flux" tour in early 1998. The special edition unites leadre Jamie Masefield with old friend Jon Fishman, drummer from the band Phish, and Chris Dahlgren, a bassist and composer from the downtown NYC scene.
"Tour de Flux" captures the exciting union of three musicians who are deeple involved in bringing improvised music to a new generation of listeners.
