About the Album

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.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
