TEST SUBJECTS is a brand-new quintet featuring the music of NYC-based pianist Billy Test. Musically the group draws from the entire lineage of jazz, from swinging tradition to the avant garde, with influences from 20th century classical music and beyond. Featuring a front line of tenor saxophonist Marc Mommaas and trumpeter Ron Horton, with Marty Kenney and Curtis Nowosad rounding out the rhythm section on bass and drums, respectively, the group aims to make interactive, adventurous music that is as accessible as it is forward-thinking.
