Simon Hanes' TSONS OF TSUNAMI Celebrates the release of their debut album on Tazdik
Born in California and now based in Brooklyn, Simon Hanes is a composer/performer/arranger and one of the major figures in the newest generation of the NY Downtown music scene. Mastermind of the large pop ensemble Tredici Bacci, a frequent collaborator of J.G.Thirlwell, and a member of the band Trigger (performing Zorn’s Bagatelles) Simon’s wild energy is always a highpoint of any live performance. Here he leads a beautiful quintet of young mavericks in a program of surf-based original compositions. Drawing on his California background, and his love of exotica and film music, he has created a beautiful soundtrack for today’s most forward thinking musical explorers.
