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.
