Recording Sessions
for new project

October 5-6, 2013

Bringing together the creative talents of five gifted musicians, bug is modern in conception while still grounded deeply in the jazz tradition. Drawing on an eclectic range of influences, the compositions are marked by a clear sense of melody, a cinematic scope of orchestration, and a sense of openness that lets the band interact at the highest levels. The infectious grooves laid down by the rhythm section allow the lead instruments to create freely, blurring the line between the composed and improvised sections of the music. bug is a journey among friends, always striving to create and communicate that which is greater than the sum of its parts.

"Origin Records recording artist “bug,” enters the playing field as a cast of seasoned players by luring you into a pool of creative melodies, edgy chords, and throaty harmonics that swells infinitely with boldness making their debut “The GADfly” more than a pleasure to listen to … The Urban Flux "(October 13, 2009)
