Friday night live at Transistor: SRS Organ Trio and Black Diamond Quartet. Sound by Jon Monteverde.

SRS Organ Trio is Trevor Shandling on drums/tunes, Glen Roberts on guitar, and Joey Skoch on keyboards. This trio plays mostly originals written by Trevor, drawing influence from the likes of Herbie Hancock, Robert Glasper, Brad Mehldau, and Kurt Rosenwinkel -- lots of back beats, dark chords, and epic melodies.

Originally formed in Bloomington, Indiana, the Black Diamond Quartet is an adventurous jazz group that features the music of saxophonists Artie Black and Hunter Diamond. The group's instrumentation (two tenor saxophones, bass, drums) creates a space for high-energy improvisation and unequivocal melodic material. For this performance, the quartet will perform a set of original compositions by Black and Diamond.
