Stephan Crump, bass
Adam O'Farrill, trumpet
Ellery Eskelin, saxophone
Kassa Overall, drums

 

Rhombal features veteran explorer Ellery Eskelin on tenor saxophone engaging with brilliant young trumpeter Adam O’Farrill in the midst of the deep rhythm team chemistry between Crump and Kassa Overall. The group recently released released its first recording, a body of work written for Crump’s late brother, Patrick. The album, Rhombal, was successfully fan-funded through PledgeMusic and arrived in 2016 on the Papillon Sounds label. "Rhombal is not about sadness. Much more, it’s a commemoration of a death well-confronted, of a spiritual evolution I witnessed in my brother during our last days together, and of how close we left each other after what had been, for many years, a very troubled relationship."
