Crushing Spiral Ensemble

Matt Small’s Crushing Spiral Ensemble blends avant-jazz, modern classical, and groove-oriented drums and bass into a whole new, unique language. Matt plays the upright and 6 string electric basses with elegant facility in a completely personal way. His 3-horn writing challenges and excites the ear in surprising ways. 2018 saw a series of recording and performing projects, keep an eye out for a couple albums that are currently in post-production.
