Hearing this quartet bop their way through their own brand of modern jazz is like a cleanser for the overexposed mind, as the four players manage to create an ensemble-sized sound with a wealth of nuance and compositional thoughtfulness.--Home Grown Music NetworkThe Connecticut-based quartet Stanley Maxwell plays original music that blends tight arrangements with intricate group improvisation. The conservatory-trained group of musicians features Andy Chatfield on drumset and percussion, Mark Crino on bass, Eric DellaVecchia on alto saxophone, and Evan Green on piano and melodica.The group has built a grassroots name for themselves at colleges and festivals throughout the northeast since 2001, combining the virtuosic and the simple into a visceral concoction, which helped lead to their winning Best Jazz Band in the Hartford Advocate's Grand Band Slam Readers' Poll in 2007, 2009, and 2010.Mousetrap is an eleven-bar blues influenced by Thelonious Monk from their debut album Don't Wake The Baby! The band's recording of the composition by pianist Evan Green attracted international attention, including Mousetrap winning Best Jazz Song in the 7th annual Independent Music Awards in December 2007. This event is part of the Music at The Russell House series.
