Bakersfield’s Invisible Astro Recovery Tempo Quartet play a make of funky, hypnotic jazz equally indebted to Sunlight Ra’s astral meditations, Ethiopian music artists such as for example Mulatu Astatke, and groove-heavy psych/Krautrock rings like May. Their expanded compositions mix swirling, repetitive rhythms with spiritually minded trumpet and saxophone solos, creating intensely concentrated however free-flowing jams. The Quartet was set up this year 2010 by Bakersfield University music college students Jordan Aguirre (guitar, body organ), Andrew Koeth (electrical bass, body organ), Brenndan Morlan (guitar, electrical bass), and Alex Sarad (drums, percussion). Accompanied by Kris Tiner on trumpet and Phillip Greenlief on tenor sax, they documented their self-titled debut recording live at Bakersfield’s Metro Galleries in Feb of 2012. After increasing cash through a Kickstarter marketing campaign, the album premiered on vinyl fabric by Epigraph Information in November of 2013. The group documented its second recording (2) with maker Chris Schlarb, and Chicago-based Problems at heart released the recording in November of 2015.
