We are pleased to announce the late addition of composer & sax great JOE GIARDULLO to the lineup! more info below...
Boston area guitarist Kevin Frenette has performed throughout the Northeast USA making music that is inspired by both avant-garde jazz and contemporary improvisation.

of KF4: Connections
"The Kevin Frenette 4 is the collaborative efforts of four like-minded, energetic musicians who approach the spontaneous inventions of Connections with a blank slate...

Most of the pieces are set in motion by Frenette, who presents quick-witted guitar motifs with plenty of melodic angularity and rhythmic motion to feed the imaginations of his cohorts. Frenette's bop-inspired opening lines on the title track, arpeggiated statements on "Network Theory" and chromaticism on "Correlation Coefficient" are quickly echoed by McWain who seems to anticipate the guitarist's every move. The last three tracks on the disc, "Amalgamation," "Combinational Mathematics" and "Merger Doctrine," stand out as the session highlights. This far into the disc, the melding of musical thought takes on a natural flow with a complete abandonment of any pre-conceived notions.

Nakatani displays his brilliance throughout the session by combining inventive manipulation of percussive sound with thoughtful moments of silence. He employs a well-stocked arsenal of percussion to create tension in unpredictable ways. There are moments of utter defiance where sound clusters seem to purposefully disregard the melodic developments of guitar and piano. On "Logic Synthesis," Nakatani sets the mood with eerie cymbal harmonics and sporadic clatter, setting up a reflective backdrop for the others to exploit.”
