Carol Liebowitz (piano) brings a uniquely expressive and personal sound to the jazz and free improvisation scene. After focusing on classical repertoire at the High School of Performing Arts and NYU, her musical direction turned to improvisation and she began studying with Connie Crothers. Other influential teachers have included Sal Mosca, Jay Clayton and Sheila Jordan. She has performed in Europe and various NYC venues such as Roulette, The Stone, Cornelia Street Cafe, IBeam, The Firehouse Space, Arts for Art, Spectrum, and Birdland. Carol has worked as a soloist, and with musicians including Adam Caine, Maryanne de Prophetis, Andrew Drury, Ken Filiano, Birgitta Flick, Ratzo Harris, Ron Horton, Adam Lane, John Pietaro, and Michael Wimberly. She has 2 CDs on Line Art Records, the latest, First Set, a duo with alto saxophonist Nick Lyons, and Payne Lindal Liebowitz, a trio with clarinetist Bill Payne and violinist Eva Lindal (chosen by Art Lange as one of the Top Ten Jazz CDs in the NPR 2015 Jazz Critics Poll). Carol also has two releases on New Artists Records.
Claire de Brunner (bassoon) won a scholarship to study with the principal bassoonist of the NY Philharmonic when she was 14. After attending the High School of Music and Art, and North Carolina School of the Arts, she studied at Manhattan School of Music and played in various ensembles before venturing beyond classical music. In 1982 she became a founding member of 101 Crustaceans, an integral band of the post-punk era in NYC. She later joined Church of Betty, another seminal band at that time and has recorded CDs with each band. Venues included Knitting Factory, Pyramid, Dixon Place, CBGB, Limelight, etc. In the early 90s, she studied jazz improvisation with saxophonist Lee Konitz and pianist Connie Crothers. Prominent among her numerous collaborators are Chris Rael, Ras Moshe, Ed Pastorini, Cheryl Richards, Oren Bloedow, Ken Filiano, Blaise Siwula, Connie Crothers, Virg Dzurinko, Mara Rosenbloom and Nick Lyons. She co-produced the CD Macroscopia (2010), released on the Metier label featuring a quartet comprising New York free jazz musicians. She’s appeared at The Firehouse Space, BAMcafe, IBeam, Barbes, Scholes St. Studio, The Stone and Roulette. Her music is varied; it reflects the ongoing pursuit of her deepest passion.

Kevin Norton (vibraphone, percussion) is one of the few percussionists in the jazz and improvised music scene that is a virtuoso on both the drum-set and mallet instruments (vibes, marimba, etc.). After earning his Master’s Degree (in Orchestral Percussion) from the Manhattan School of Music, Kevin began to gig around NYC: playing classical, jazz and rock, but eventually falling into what became known as the Downtown Scene, a scene that was fusing all styles into a unique and explosive hybrid musical language. He has toured extensively in the U.S. and Europe with Anthony Braxton, David Krakauer, Fred Frith, James Emery, Frode Gjerstad as well as groups under his own leadership. Kevin frequently performs as a leader/solist but has also collaborated with exceptional musicians including Milt Hinton, Joëlle Léandre, John Lindberg, Tony Malaby, Dave Ballou, Connie Crothers, Scott Robinson, Nick Didkovsky, Paul Dunmall, Paul Rodgers, Marshall Allen and Henry Grimes. He can be heard on well over 100 recordings, the latest, Staten Island: All that is solid melts into air, is available on Bandcamp and features his Breakfast of Champignon(s) group.
