Through a unique musical bond, Bug's five musicians have managed to
retain a tight rapport in spite of being spread throughout the U.S.
Featuring brothers, guitarist Jeff and pianist James Miley, they
present their driving and sometimes twisted melodic sense with a
quintet including saxophonist Peter Epstein, bassist Roger Shew and
Brian Hamada on drums. On GADfly, Bug explores an original set of
music showcasing the unit as a tight band, with chops and musicality
to spare. From the intertwining melodies of "Invernessence" to the
auspicious lines of "Wishful Thinking," Bug digs deep into the modern
jazz tradition with a forward-looking vision, taking listeners for a
ride the entire way.
