Gold Sparkle Trio: Formed in Atlanta and now based in Brooklyn, the Gold Sparkle Band plays what they call “NuZion Jazz.” “The Gold Sparkle Band seems to reference the work of Ornette Coleman and Eric Dolphy almost religiously, shirking the weight of “outness” embraced by Coleman only a few years after his most tuneful phase and heralded by Germans, Brits, and Sun Ra.”–Ink 19; Big Numbers; DJ Matt Mikas

Big Numbers: Big Numbers is from New York and, recently, Providence. Ryan Sawyer is the drummer, Jefferson Rabb plays bass, Alex Holden plays guitar, as does vocalist Nat Rabb. The group began in 1999 with previous drummer Jeffrey Ledbetter. Their newest recording, done with crack studio whiz Aaron Mullan, was released in a limited capacity for their European tour in May, 2003.
