iNFiNiEN @ The Jazz Estate

Philadelphia-born iNFiNiEN will be appearing for one night on August 19th at The Jazz Estate in Milwaukee. Sharing the nignt with local guest musicians Complex Complex, iNFiNiEN will perform several stimulating sets featuring music from their critically acclaimed independent release. Thier twist of improvisation and songwriting combine eclectic musical personalities into a visionary, unified force. With rock, jazz, soul, world, and classical influences iNFiNiEN has discovered its own voice both live and in the studio. After playing together for four years the quartet has released two independent albums and completed a successful tour in 2008.

"Calling it "fusion" isn't even entirely correct, since that smacks of cocktail parties and easy-listening boredom. This is the sublimation of styles, a group of highly trained players sacrificing their training for the sake of something more exciting."-Philadelphia City Paper

"iNFiNiEN’s set is dynamic and energizing, with Loftus rolling her head and emoting like a languid seductress. The music is moody, jazzy, lounge-y and dramatic, with dissonant chords resolving into melody and tinkering Middle Eastern sounds. For most of their set, they’re joined by New Orleans saxophonist Kyle Cripps, whose jazzy playing adds another layer to their sonic creations. Their last track, "Perpetual Twilight," is 10 minutes long, and devolves into a raucous, thrashing collage of sound. It’s the perfect end to a long evening, and I leave feeling like the possibilities for music are truly infinite."
