"This is a band that's given me some of the best listening experiences I've had over the last couple of years."
-Robert Iannapollo, Cadence/Opprobrium

Formed in 2001, the Respect Sextet is a powerhouse ensemble dedicated to performing a variety of improvisational musics, including free improvisations, original compositions, free jazz classics, Bulgarian tunes, text pieces, jazz standards, and game pieces. Seemingly disparate strands are held together by Respect's explosive energy, outstanding musicianship, and rare telepathy, honed by two years of weekly performances at a Rochester coffeehouse. The feeling that at any moment anything can happen and an overarching joie de vivre pervade Respect performances.

The Respect Sextet, through its eclecticism, its devotion to improvisation, its predilection towards swing, and its use of toys and "little instruments," has drawn comparisons both to New Dutch Swing and to the AACM. Indeed, many dialectics are at work (or play) in Respect's music, in which the serious, heady, and intellectual mingles with the light, comic, and absurd, where compositions alternate with improvisations, and where tight ensemble work coexists with loose, empathic interplay.

Josh Rutner (reeds); Eli Asher (trumpet); James Hirschfield (trombone); Malcolm Kirby (bass); Ted Poor (drums); Red Wierenga (piano, accordion)
