Electric guitarist Tisziji Muñoz is considered by many to be among the greatest and least-known living musicians. His music evokes the cosmic free jazz of John Coltrane’s later work and, like a saxophonist, Muñoz plays only one note at a time, yet he can play with such velocity that the notes blur, akin to Coltrane’s sheets of sound.

Tisziji Muñoz, a New York born guitarist and truly underground jazz hero, is himself a disciple of John Coltrane and played for six years in the band of Trane disciple Pharoah Sanders. Like Sanders, his music is spiritual with an exciting edgy feel. 

John Medeski is a jazz keyboard player and composer. Medeski is a veteran of New York’s 1990s avant-garde jazz scene and is known popularly as a member of Medeski Martin & Wood.
